Bird Watching Trips

Bird watching trips are available during November through until April

During the winter months we have over 300,000 birds inhabit our coastline, travelling in from Scandinavia, our mudflats are like a massive larder to these birds to feed up on. Local birds sighted include Curlews, Cormorants, Egrets, Turnstones, Knots, Marsh Harriers, Shags, Sanderling, Dunlin, Brent Geese, Swans, Shell Ducks, Mallard, Oyster Catchers, Bar-Tailed Godwits, Black-Tailed Godwits, Ringed Plover, Redshank and Greenshank, Whimbrel, Herons, Greylag Geese, Guillemots, Red-Throated Diver, Great Nothern Diver, Avocets, Spoonbills and not forgetting the Herring Gull and Black-Headed Gulls, Little Terns and Common Terns and many more. Wildlife and bird watching groups and clubs are all welcome.

Types of trips available to book are listed below:

1. Low water waders - exploring Tollesbury and Salcot creeks round the low tides gives us a fantastic opportunity to see the wading birds feasting on the mudflats and possibly see divers off in the deeper water.

Cost: £100 for up to 6 passengers or £180 for up to 12 passengers. Duration: 2 hours.

It is advisable for the bird watching trip to limit it to 6 people for comfort during the trip.

2. High water murmurations - exploring Tollesbury creeks on high tide provides us with spectacular sights as the birds gather up in the air together forming mesmerising patterns overhead whilst ducks paddle amongst the tide-flooded lagoons of marshland.

Cost: £100 for up to 6 passengers or £180 for up to 12 passengers. Duration: 2 hours.

It is advisable for the bird watching trip to limit it to 6 people for comfort during the trip.

3. Whole day adventure - spend the morning exploring the creeks and observing the wading birds amongst the mudflats. Stop off for lunch at Mersea or Tollesbury (tide dependant) and if there’s time you have the chance to explore the village before your afternoon trip. Spend the afternoon amongst the tidal lagoons of marshland where the birds retreat and gather in numbers performing mesmerising patterns in the sky overhead.

COST: £200 hire of the whole boat for up to 6 people OR £360 for up to 12 people

Places to eat in Tollesbury: Sail Loft Tearoom OR Harbour View restaurant

Places to eat in Mersea: Blackwater Pearl Café, Oyster Bar, Coast Inn, Victory Pub

Why not give me a call on 07791 859624 now to discuss your preferred date and I will have a look at the tides to see what is available for the day.

Every trip is different and you never know what you might see. We frequently see seals on these trips and occasionally we are lucky enough to also see porpoises too!

Wildlife is in abundance around Mersea Island and you never know what you might come across including the Mersea Seal!

 
For those of you that don't know your birds that well, Stacey has created her very own bird app which has a series of yes/no questions you follow to identify which birds you are looking at.  This app is available on iPhone, iPad and android devices.
