What do our clients say about their birdwatching experience with Cornwall Birdwatching Tours?…………………..

Lisa Brosseau and Partner, USA (East Dartmoor Tour) – “We spent a day in late May with Paul and Brad and several others on a tour of the East Dartmoor National Nature Reserve, leaving early (7 am) from Hayle by van to visit Yarner Woods and Challacombe Farm, with a lunchtime stop at a pub. We saw a great variety of birds (all first-time as Americans) – the guides made sure everyone got to see a bird before moving on. We highly recommend Paul and this company – we’ll definitely contact him again when we return to Cornwall”.

Peter Brinton, UK (East Dartmoor Tour) – “This was a fantastic days birding at a brilliant venue. We saw most of our target birds. The organisation of the excursion was top class and everything ran smoothly. Both guides were very knowledgeable and shared their expertise in an accessible way. They catered for all abilities and experience. The pace of the day was the perfect balance between getting to the sites we were going to visit and concentrating on the birds around us.
The lunch venue chosen was very reasonably priced and great quality.
Thank you Paul and Brad for your help and kindness”

Anna Bowes, UK (bespoke tour) – “We had a really wonderful day out with Paul recently. Not only did we see a huge number of different birds, we also found some rare ones – like the Glaucous Gull. He showed us some top spots in the area and even gave us some photography tips – and took some great shots for us. We can’t wait to have another day out with Paul. Best day of our holiday”

Steve Dexter, USA (10 Day bespoke tour) – “I made the right decision when I hired Paul Freestone as my bird guide when I made my first trip to England’s Cornwall County. Paul’s expertise in identifying birds is remarkable whether it’s getting a quick glimpse or hearing its song or call. His perseverance in making sure I got good looks at each bird reassured me I was in the hands of a master. If you hire Paul you will also benefit from his knowledge of the area’s history and culture – a wonderful bonus. I recommend his birding services highly. You will be so glad you hired Paul.”

Barry Parsonage, UK (Bespoke Tour) – “Had great day out with Paul in spite of the vagaries of the weather which meant shortage of migrants! Thoroughly enjoyable and learned a lot, not least of which were the great locations he showed us, great for future visits. Highly recommend a day birding with him”

Peter Cowell, UK (Bespoke Tour) – “I spent the day with Paul on a day tour last September,
We had a nice dry day and saw lots of birds on and off shore Pauls knowledge was immense and was able to take me to see many different types of birds. Looking forward to another trip when I am in Cornwall”

Ken Ozanne , Australia (Bespoke Tour) – “I have been on birdwatching excursions with Paul on two occasions and could not have been happier with his services. My visits to Cornwall from Australia depend on factors not related to birds but I shall be seeking his advice for my next visit”

Neil Duggan and Paul Hand, UK (Bespoke Tour) – “High quality guide with excellent communication skills. Paul found us all our target species and much more. I’d urge anyone to consider booking to make the most of any trip to south west”
