Brush up on your Gull, Diver and Grebes identification skills at Broadsands with local expert Mike Langman. Torbay provides some great opportunities to study gulls and wintering seabirds often at close range. Mike will take you through the identification of several gull species of various ages and any grebes and divers that should be present in 2018 even a rare american Surf Scoter. The marsh is a great place for wintering chiffchaffs often of two subspecies; being sure of a positive identification is not easy but with help you’ll have a much clearer idea and there is always the chance of a rare Yellow-browed Warbler or Firecrest! The winter cirl bunting feeding station which Mike started 20 years ago will be visited for some great views of this ‘Devon Bunting’. Mike is a renowned wildlife artist and bird watcher – see www.mikelangman.co.uk . No two years are the same, so even if you have been before the chances are something different will appear!
