We've led two exciting personalised birding tours over the last few days, with a packed day tour for John and Lizzie from Tennessee on Saturday, followed by a three-day tour for Richard from North Carolina. Both sets of clients had come to us with challenging species wishlists for us to sink our teeth into — which led to some amazing birding!

On top of the Hen Harriers and Hawfinches, there were many other highlights including an unexpected fly-by from a pair of Long-tailed Ducks on Saturday's tour, and exciting encounters with churring Dartford Warblers, a scattering of Bramblings, and flocking Golden Plovers for everybody.
Over the two trips this last week, we notched up 114 species!
