Welcome to West Coast Birdwatching

Our main offer is guided trips. These are mostly in Pembrokeshire, especially to Skomer Island and the adjacent mainland. As well as planned trips, we can create bespoke trips tailored to your needs, from one-to-one to small groups.

We do offer some overseas trips too, including the Canary Islands and Oman.

Finally, we also undertake survey work and offer consultancy services, in particular focussing on bird identification.

If you need more information, please don’t hesitate to contact us.

    Anyone fancy the best chance there is of seeing Wilson's Storm Petrel in Welsh waters? I've added one extra pelagic trip off the Pembrokeshire Coast, bank holiday Monday 26th August. Cost is £85 per person. To book please e-mail only.

    Releasing Pheasants into the UK 'countryside' has to stop. Does anyone think it is a good idea? If so, why? And don't mention the word economy....go. @ChrisGPackham @IoloWilliams2
