Catching up

by on Nov.17, 2021, under Druridge Bay

It’s been an incredibly busy summer and autumn for NEWT. After a long challenging time for small businesses since March 2020 we suddenly found ourselves under a deluge of work. Martin’s been leading wildlife and photography holidays for two other companies as well as guiding our safari trips and pelagics and leading events at the award-winning Battlesteads Observatory.

Our safari trips over the last few months have concentrated on the Druridge Bay area, with marsh harrier, little egret, roe deer and a selection of waders and wildfowl all featuring regularly, alongside an ever-increasing starling murmuration, hunted incessantly by sparrowhawks, occasional appearances by barn owls and, in the last month, yapping skeins of pink-footed geese speckling the sky as dusk approaches. Family mini-Safaris focused on the smaller creatures, with spiders. dragonflies and banded snails all watched with fascination by the younger participants on our tours, and we’re adding rockpooling activities as an option to next year’s family bookings.

We’ll be posting a gallery of images from our 2020 pelagic season shortly, as well as posts about our three tours/workshops already this week!
