Norfolk Birds Galore! With Ashley Grove


Mon 13 - Fri 17 Sep 2021: A 5 Day Escorted Coach Holiday to Norfolk for Birdwatching with Johnsons Coaches

Book Now

Monday 13th to Friday 17th September 2021


Norfolk is second to none as a county to see birds all year round. It is not renowned for just the sheer quantity of good birds to be seen but also for the quality of them. Many resident species are either not found elsewhere or are localised. Add to this the regular appearance of Scarce Migrates or National Rarities and it is obvious why birders return time and time again to Norfolk at all times of the year, year after year.


Look What's Included:

  • 4 nights dinner, bed and breakfast

  • Club Class Extra Legroom Coach

  • Seal Cruise

  • Lakenheath (RSPB)

  • Titchwell (RSPB)

  • Cley Norfolk Wildlife Trust & Cley Marshes


On all Tours we will spend time outdoors regardless of the weather. Please bring sensible clothing and wear strong shoes or boots, as it can be wet and muddy. Our Active Traveller Holiday itineraries often include walks which may be up to 1 – 1.5 miles long over uneven ground which may prove challenging for those customers with reduced and limited mobility.


What else could you bring? Binoculars are recommended, and you may wish to bring a small bird guide book to help with identification or a compact digital camera, but this is entirely up to you!


Ashley Grove

From a very young age, Ashley’s passion for nature and the great outdoors was obvious. Initially taking inspiration from his parents, he was soon pointing out new species of birds to them in their Warwickshire garden.


Life does however have its restrictions, the need for a "proper" job being one of those, so Birds and Photography were relegated to hobbies for some time. However alongside the day jobs, Ashley has volunteered for the RSPB for many years and was asked by his local group in 2006 to give a talk, being already established as a very capable wildlife photographer.


This was to be the beginning of a big change and now as a recommended speaker for the RSPB, BTO & Royal Horticultural Society, Ashley gives around 50 talks a year. Subject matter for the talks is taken from his travels, which began in The Gambia and so became the obvious destination for his first guided tour.


‘Experience Nature’ have now run 15 holidays to The Gambia, many breaks to the Spanish Pyrenees, Trinidad & Tobago, Sri Lanka, Sweden and various British destinations, with more places in the pipeline at home and abroad.


Johnsons are proud to announce that 2021 will be our 4th year of working in partnership with Ashley and the tours we will be featuring are listed on Pages 46 - 49 of the Summer 2021 Brochure.


Where facilities allow, these breaks will include an evening talk by Ashley, who is a recommended speaker by the RSPB and Royal Horticultural Society. Each of Ashley’s informative talks are illustrated with images from his stunning wildlife portfolio and punctuated with entertaining anecdotes of his experiences in the field.
