We’re running a three day trip to South Devon around the weekend of 2-5 August. We’ll be based near Brixham, the intention is to spend one day on a pelagic trip, and see a few sea specialists and for the remaining days we’ll visit places like:

Berry Head National Nature Reserve, an internationally acclaimed site known for its coastal wildlife, historical significance, and geological formations. It’s home to a variety of seabirds and offers stunning views of the South Devon coast.

Slapton Ley National Nature Reserve: Located about 13 miles from Brixham, Slapton Ley is the largest natural freshwater lake in the south-west of England. It’s separated from the sea by a narrow shingle bar. The reserve is renowned for its diverse habitats supporting a wide range of species, including birds, insects, and plants. Birdwatchers can expect to see species such as Cetti’s warblers, bitterns, and occasionally ospreys.

Dawlish Warren National Nature Reserve: Approximately 20 miles northeast of Brixham, Dawlish Warren offers a unique combination of beach, dunes, grassland, and mudflats, making it a fantastic site for birdwatching.
