Seabirds and Paella

We’re unable to take bookings for this event at the moment whilst we monitor government guidelines on COVID-19. We are hoping to run this event and are reviewing how we can do so safely. Please do check back again soon or watch our social media pages for updates.

Learn more about sea watching and migrating seabirds. Trawlers regularly return from a day’s fishing in Lyme Bay during the evening sometimes with flocks of seabirds following them. Skuas, Shearwaters and Terns are all likely to be found among the gulls but identification can be tricky and local expert Mike Langman will pass on some of his 40 years’ experience of watching seabirds and indeed marine wildlife including the resident Harbour Porpoises.

We will sit at the bottom of the quarry during this evening watch and Mike will tell you how to watch and what to look for whatever the weather. The evening light provides some of the very best viewing opportunities for passing seabirds at Berry Head, far better than the, often, silhouetted morning sightings, however depending on weather conditions views might still be distant.

Berry Head is perhaps the best place in Britain for seeing the globally threatened Balearic Shearwater although a sighting cannot be guaranteed! One thing that will be guaranteed is the delicious paella and a dessert at the Guardhouse Cafe!
