Birdwatching Weekend Holiday on the Isle of Wight

with The Garlic Farm & Natural Links

8 - 10 November 2019

Join your weekend leader, Dave Fairlamb, of Natural Links for a birdwatching break packed with the best of autumn birds as we visit some of the top nature reserves and birdwatching sites on the Isle of Wight.

The wide range of habitats on this stunning Island and the surrounding shores and seas off the south coast of England provide fantastic birdwatching with a wonderful array of species; Geese, diving and dabbling Ducks, Waders, Birds of Prey, Divers and Grebes, Herons and Egrets, Larks, Finches and Buntings and Woodland Birds.

This will be the first year that The Garlic Farm and Natural Links have joined forces to offer guests a weekend break that combines all the comfort you would expect from a choice of Country Cottage or Luxury Yurt accommodation nestled in beautiful countryside at the foot of the chalkland downs, with expert-led excursions to local nature reserves and birdwatching hot spots on the Wild-Isle.

The month of November can always turn up a few surprises, and in recent years, scarcer island visitors have included Hen Harrier, Greater Yellowlegs, Little Stint, Waxwing, Siberian Stonechat, Yellow-browed Warbler, Firecrest, Spanish Sparrow and Snow Bunting.
