For Beginners

Here at Birding Ecosse we understand that not everyone is an expert, and booking onto an organised day tour or birding holiday may be a daunting thought.  Well no need to worry as we have the following options available to you, or even as a gift for someone you may know wanting to start out in this fantastic hobby.

What is even better you do not even have to own any equipment. We have some excellent Swarovski, Leica and Opticron binoculars for you to borrow and try our two top quality Swarovski Spotting Scopes, one straight, one angled so you can decide which set up you prefer, we even give you your own checklist and pencil to record the birds you see so you can follow them up after the day in the field. ( all the above at no extra charge)

Beginners day trips:  A fantastic introduction to the world of birds and birding. Visiting a variety of habitats you will get expert tuition on the main aspects of birding, ranging from buying optics, how to use optics, what equipment you really need (and it is a lot less than you think!) an introduction to Basic Field craft and finally putting it all into practice in an easy, no jargon, relaxed way, remember it is a hobby! with a complimentary Checklist to keep note of the Species we have seen.  All you need to bring is a packed lunch and an open mind!

The price for a Beginners day trip is £140 for first person then £95 per extra person (up to a maximum of four)

So no need to feel intimidated just contact us and let an amazing new chapter in your life begin.

Welcome to the fantastic world of Birding!

Good Birding
