Winter tours

With winter drawing to a close we are looking back over our monthly tours which we started in 2017/2018.

Winter can be a fantastic time for Birdwatching in the Cotswold Waterpark with many thousands of waterbirds around, along with a few rearer species on show.

Some of the highlights of our recent tours have included Bittern, Marsh harrier, Peregrine falcon, Short eared owls, Smew, Ring necked Duck, Great northern diver to name a few.

Also large groups of Redwing and Fieldfare can be seen around the park feeding in the bushes along with groups of Siskin and Redpoll.

On the water several duck species can be seen and this year we saw large numbers of Pintail in the waterpark always nice to see these elegant ducks.

Our most commented on bird by our clients was the tiny Goldcrest that we had some very close encounters with, incredible to see them this close.

If you would like to come along on these tours we are thinking about runnng them again in 2018/2019, please email us and we can add you to our list, these trips are incredible value for money and you really don't know what you might see.

Looking forward now to our spring and summer tours.DT
