WELCOME TO LANIUS BIRD TOURS

We offer a range of friendly, affordable and expertly guided birdwatching holidays both overseas and here in the UK. Based in Nottinghamshire our tours depart where possible from local airports in the Midlands. They are aimed at like-minded people with a general interest in wildlife, with all levels from beginners to experts catered for. Focussing primarily on birds, time wherever possible will also be given to watching mammals, butterflies and reptiles etc. Our tours are intended not only to offer incredible birdwatching, but also an enjoyable relaxing holiday, allowing plenty of time for prolonged good views of target birds.

2019 Availabilty
We still have availability on the following tours.

THE CANARY ISLANDS
These remarkable volcanic islands lying 100km or more off the African Coast have been isolated for long enough to have evolved an endemic flora and fauna and now provide one of the naturalist's greatest opportunities to appreciate the evolutionary process first observed by Charles Darwin in the 19th century. We will visit the two islands of Tenerife and Fuerteventura which differ substantially in vegetation, from semi-deserts to lush laurel forests. Between them they are home to six species of endemic birds - Laurel Pigeon, Bolle's Pigeon, Blue Chaffinch, Canary Island Kinglet, Canary Island Chiffchaff and Fuerteventura Chat. A further three species - Plain Swift, Berthelot's Pipit and Atlantic Canary are endemic to the Macaronesia group, while several fascinating endemic subspecies can also be found. It is also home to a good number of desert-loving species typical of North Africa and to top it off these islands have a good record for turning up rare vagrants from both Africa and North America. However, as the islands are so isolated the number of species we see will be quite low (about 70) but the quality will definitely be high.
