We highly value our clients feedback and below is a selection of their testimonials and experience of our services:
“My wife Sandra and I have been with Neville on at least 4 of his guided trips; Malaga, and Mallorca (x2), Spain, and Lesvos, Greece from April 07 onwards.
All trips have been highly successful from all perspectives; all smoothly executed with excellent birding. All trips were thoroughly researched (largely based on Neville’s experience of regular visits to the areas), with pretrip itineries and post-trip reports — both excellent momentos/aide memoires for posterity. Itineries were jam-packed with birding from dawn to dusk (with even some night outings to look for owls and nightjars thrown in for good measure) — not a moment wasted, and tailored to suit the birding party – those who were happy just with bins, those who had their scopes and those their cameras. And yet the itinery was flexible, adapting to suit weather conditions, etc.
Neville did all the driving, particularly useful for those of us not used to driving on the continent or wanting to relax, and yet Neville still usually spotted the birds before us. However, if necessary, always prepared to stop and go back for another look. Neville’s an excellent guide, incredible knowledge of the locations, very impressive spotting and identifying skills — very rarely gets one wrong.
Sandra and I have each seen more than a hundred “lifers” on the trips, but its those unplanned moments that will always live in memory: Seeing 60+ Griffon Vultures coming over the ridge in Andalucia.Monk parakeets suddenly flying in to roost in trees adjacent to the Guadaihorce Estuary so close to Malaga airport. Being greeted by 200+ Bee-Eaters on our first evening in Pert de Pollenca, Mallorca.Black Kite, Osprey and Black Vulture at Cuber Reservoir (Mallorca).
The Scops Owl flying close by in response to Neville’s calling (Casas Velles, Mallorca). Watching the aerial acrobatics of flocks of swarming starlings about to roost in the S’Albufera Marshes (Mallorca).Spotting that elusive glossy ibis (Mallorca). After several days of searching, finally locating the Rose Coloured Starlings in the Mulberry Tree (Lesvos). Krupper’s Nuthatch coming back to its nest to feed its young (Lesvos). And all those rare sightings; Rufous Bush Robin, Cinereous and Cretzchmar’s Bunting, Western Roãk Nuthatch (Bob’s), Spur Winged Plovers, Collared Pratincole, Ruppell’s Warbler, etc (Lesvos) Experiences not to be missed. Some of the highlights of our lives.
Highly recommended. Alan & Sandra Woodward, Gwent, South Wales
I have known Neville Davies since 2006. I came into contact with him while working for Caerphilly County Borough Council as a Countryside Ranger looking after 3,000 hectares of common land. I employed him to carry out a series of wildlife and bird surveys, which helped me to improve the management of the commons as habitats for flora and fauna. I also employed him to lead several guided ‘Bird Walks’ for the general public and various groups. I often accompanied him on these walks and can vouch for his extensive knowledge about many aspects of ecology especially birds, his infective enthusiasm and sense of humour. I found him a very interesting and informative companion to have on these outings and can testify to the fact that I have learned a great deal about birds through Neville for whom I have come to have a great deal of respect and regard.
