From the avocets, godwits and Brent geese that flock to the Exe estuary to the puffins, razorbills and arctic terns of the Farne Islands, England is home to an abundance of wild birds.

Bird Watching Holidays In England

Take a holiday by the coast to spot sea birds such as kittiwakes, guillemots, and gulls or venture inland to the beautiful English countryside where you can see woodland birds such as finches, tits and woodpeckers. If you holiday near water you may be lucky enough to glimpse the flash of blue of a kingfisher.

These self catering holiday cottages have been chosen specifically for being close to areas known to be excellent for bird watching as well as other outdoor pursuits and wildlife.

There are RSPB nature reserves all over England including the most visited, Titchwell Marsh in Norfolk, and the manager of your holiday cottage will be happy to give you directions and further information about the nearest reserve.
