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.

    It's all about the people. 10 years ago @westcoastbw was born: it has been every bit as much fun as you can imagine. I have met some wonderful people, been to some amazing places, & seen some amazing birds (and other wildlife). Thanks to everyone who has been on the journey.


    Hi folks. I'm looking for hi-res images of Black-tailed Godwits, both islandica & limosa, particular summer adults & also juveniles as well. Ideally taken in the UK, but that's not essential.
    Please DM me if you have anything that may be helpful. Thanks in advance, Mark
