Day trips & holidays

Each year we organise day trips and holidays for our members.

The cost of the trip is kept to a minimum, whilst still making a small profit for SBBOT.

Please note that all trips require payment in advance to secure a place and you can also book at the Field Centre.

Winter Birding in North Wales

Friday 25th – 29st January 2019

Price: £185 per person bed, breakfast and dinner.

Three full days out are included in the price. The full itinerary will be announced once it is finalised.

Join us on the first Observatory trip to North Wales. We will be staying at a fine hotel with stunning sea views. The Somerset Hotel on the sea-front of Llandudno is within easy reach of the key birding sites on the fast roads along the North Wales coast, into the wonderful scenery of the Snowdonian mountains and out onto Anglesey.

Expect to see lots of wintering ducks and wading birds, grebes and divers in the sheltered estuaries, birds of prey such as Hen Harrier, Peregrine and Merlin, and in the wooded valleys of the Snowdon range we should come across a range of forest species. A visit to South Stack on Anglesey should guarantee Red-billed Chough and who knows what else might turn up. The target for the trip will be over 100 species – come and help us achieve it!

The coach will leave Sandwich Bird Observatory at 7am on the Friday, please be at the car park at least 15 mins before departure. We will arrive at the hotel in time for dinner on Friday and depart after breakfast on Tuesday.

Please fill out a booking form at the Observatory along with a £30 non-refundable deposit to secure your place on this trip.
