The Bird ID Company

The Bird ID Company offers a variety of guided birdwatching day tours and birding holidays throughout the year to well-known reserves and other less visited sites across Norfolk and Suffolk.

We cater for all abilities, from complete beginners to more experienced birdwatchers and we operate with smaller groups, to maximise everyone’s experience.


The Bird ID Company offers a variety of bird watching tours throughout the year to well known reserves and out of the way places in Norfolk and Suffolk, all of these provide fantastic opportunities to see a wide range of different birds. Our bird watching tours range from one day tours to five day holidays during migration times. We cater for all abilities from complete beginners who are interested in a general selection of birds to more experienced birdwatchers who may be targeting certain species.

We specialise in helping birdwatchers get more from the hobby by teaching them identification skills in the field. This should enhance your enjoyment as well as giving you greater confidence in your own ability. We normally see around 80 – 90 species a day depending on the time of year and we often encounter a scarce or rare bird, which always adds to the excitement on the day.

In addition to our main tours, at appropriate times of the year we also offer target species tours to see some of our speciality birds. For example Cranes, Geese and Owls in the winter, Breckland trips in March for Hawfinch & Goshawk and Golden Oriole, Montagu’s Harrier & Wader tours in the summer. During spring and autumn we run 5 day & weekend migration tours and customised tours are available at any time of the year.

“I wanted to thank you again for the wonderful day we spent together. You are a superb guide and know your territory well. I would strongly recommend you to anyone interested in birding in Norfolk”
