Easy birding/wildlife

These holidays focus on birds and/or mammals although the pace is gentle and we aim to give an insight into the general natural history of the areas we visit rather than focusing on specific species. There are, however, bound to be highlights such as seeing less common animals and enjoying particularly good views as well as having time for some exciting wildlife watching!
