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.

Details of our next events are below. You can also book a place at the Field Centre. Please note that all trips require payment in advance to secure a place.

Birdwatching around Weymouth

Oct 27th 2017 for 4 nights


Travelling by coach and staying at the lovely Russell Hotel in Weymouth.

This trip is ideal for both beginner and more experienced birdwatchers. At this time of year we will be looking for Bearded Tits and Bitterns roaming around the reedbeds, and the area is also perfect for seeing Waders and Wildfowl in large numbers. Of course we will also be keeping an eye out for rarities, especially at Portland Bill, whilst other favourites such as Kingfishers, Mediterranean Gulls and Harriers will be discovered in this gorgeous setting.

Cost £215
