Great time to watch winter-visiting birds
During winter we get a lot of birds visiting the UK , especially waders and sea birds, so this is a great opportunity to see some of them. Grab your binoculars and camera and head to your closest estuary or wetlands and have a look. Most counties also have bird sighting websites which are helpful to find good spots to see them and to find out what is about.
If you want to have a guided walk in East Devon to see some of them , please get in contact with me.
