Starting and finishing in the cathedral city of Exeter, we will visit the top bird watching sites along the rich mudflats of the Exe estuary which attract Little Egret, Brent Goose, Wigeon, Red-breasted Merganser, Black and Bar-tailed Godwits, Oystercatcher, Curlew, grebes, divers and sea-duck among many other birds. We’ll look out for the resident Buzzards and Peregrines which compete with visiting raptors for prey over the nearby marshes, while on the Devon heaths we’ll look for Dartford Warblers and, if we are lucky, perhaps see wintering a Great Grey Shrike. One of the undoubted highlights of this short break will be views of the most famous of the area's winter visitors, Avocets, which sometimes gather in groups hundreds-strong at the water’s edge.

Born and raised in his beloved Devon, Matt is an ecologist and naturalist with a special interest in birds and protected UK mammals including Hazel Dormice and Otter. He studied Zoology at the University of Reading and completed a Masters in Ecology before going on to a career as an ecological consultant based in Bristol, a role which saw him counting Red-breasted Geese in Bulgaria and Egyptian Vultures in Azerbaijan. He later worked for Avon Wildlife Trust establishing the 'My Wild City' project whose vision of nature-rich cities involved converting nature-devoid spaces into wildlife havens. Matt is now a full time freelance ecologist and wildlife educator, running wildlife identification training courses across the southern counties for the British Trust for Ornithology, RSPB and the Wildlife Trust. He also leads guided nature walks in his home county of Devon and completes protected species surveys for various infrastructure projects. When not working he enjoys spending time on his bike training for triathlons and has a particular passion/obsession for all things Swifts - you have been warned!
