An August catch up


I must open with an apology for not posting for a while. The tours have been going very well which has left very little time to write any updates for the website.


I will keep this one short, it’s really a list of where we have been & what we have seen through late July & August.


The minibus situation has moved on a little, it turns out my local authority won’t let me use the VW Transporter I bought because they deem it to be too old. Which is very disappointing as it is in such good condition and very comfortable. However, rules are rules. This has left me needing to buy a new minibus, frustrating but I have no choice but to carry on with my dream of offering short birding breaks and holidays.


Update:

I have now purchased a new minibus so will begin the process of getting licensed by my local council.


I will update everyone when I have more news.



So, below are the lists of what we have seen on the last 6 outings.
