BARBADOS - birdwatching holidays
Among the gently rolling hills of Barbados' interior there are many hidden gems, superb country properties surrounded by lush, tropical gardens.
Horticulturists will delight at the incredible profusion of flowers, shrubs and trees, while the many species of birds will afford hours of joy to birdwatchers.
Another pleasure that only those far from the lights of town can enjoy...
at night the gardens are filled with fireflies, a magical sight.
Birdwatching and travel make a perfect combination and an excellent way to visit exciting destinations.
Barbados is no exception to the rule. Birding holidays generally allocate the mornings to birding taking advantage of the peak of bird activity especially in some of our natural swamp areas.
The afternoon is allocated to other activities other than enjoying the
sun, sea and sand.
Bird tours typically start in the early morning to take advantage of peak bird activity.
Some tours involve considerable walking, others require very little.
tours are not physically strenuous.
Some tours include long walks and drives on bumpy roads.
For participants that can do limited amount of walking, alternate options are possible, please inform us in advance.
Tours have designed to ensure a balance between superb birding and easy
to moderate terrain.
In the afternoon birding is more opportunistic as we dedicate time to
other aspects accordingly.
There were lots of yellowlegs and Black-bellied Plovers
and Ruffs. Expect to see the all-male-plumaged Carib Grackles and the
all-female-plumaged Lesser Antillean Bullfinches.
A comment from the visitors book sums it all up...
Created as a private garden, on an Atlantic hillside, in the mid 1950s, Andromeda, a five acre haven perched, on a cliff overlooking the east coast, has grown to become one of the most acclaimed botanic gardens in the region
