Book Now

Sunday 31st October to Thursday 4th November 2021


As birdwatching sites for Wildfowl and Waders go, the Solway Firth is globally important, with tens of thousands of birds overwintering here between October and February. The Wildfowl & Wetlands Trust reserve of Caerlaverock will be at the centre of our activities, boasting flocks of up to 40,000 Barnacle Geese from Arctic Svalbard, which share the wetlands with Pink-footed & White-fronted Geese, Whooper Swans and various wading birds. We’ll also venture west to Loch Ryan, one of the best places to spot a variety of sea-ducks, grebes and divers in Scotland.
