If you want to see lots of wildlife, these trips are by far the best of the lot.
Whether you're primarily interested in birds, butterflies, wild flowers, reptiles, amphibians or mammals, there's something for everybody in early summer.
If you're like me and are interested in all species of wildlife, you certainly won't be disappointed. We've seen and/or heard some really special animals, including corncrake, quail, mole cricket, golden eagle, lesser spotted eagle, honey buzzard, hobby, golden oriole, red-backed shrikes, black storks, black redstarts, purple emperor & lesser purple emperor butterflies, more fritillaries than I've ever seen before, beavers, sand lizards, wolf tracks & signs and wildflower meadows everywhere. We even had a glimpse of a raccoon-dog and a close encounter with a wolf!
If you like photographing butterflies and other insects, you'll be in heaven. If you're a botanist, you'll be more than happy.
With lots of butterflies, dragonflies and damselflies, sand lizards, warm sunny weather and beautiful scenery, one week just isn't enough.
Why don't you join me on this trip?
If you click on the images below you'll see some of our photographs and videos (thanks to Annie Haycock who came in 2016 for her videos of the lesser spotted woodpecker, butterflies on wolf faeces and beavers).
