What's New


If we do not hear from you,
you will not hear from us!

New rules governing data protection came into force in May 2018. If you are no longer receiving Sunbird newsletters and our annual brochure it will be because we have not received renewed authorisation to contact you. In order that we comply with the new rules we need you to let us know if you still wish to hear from Sunbird, and in what way.

The new short tour to look for the recently rediscovered Forest Owlet northeast of Mumbai in India can be taken on its own or as a pre-tour extension to either West India: Gujarat tour in 2020, or South India and the Andaman Islands tour in 2021. It is also possible to join this from the India: Goa tour.

This new tour takes us into the Sahel, a wonderful mixture of dry savannah, semi-deserts and exciting wetlands. We’ll be seeking out a whole range of special birds including Arabian and Savile’s Bustards, Golden Nightjar, Quail Plover, Egyptian Plover, Little Grey Woodpecker, Adamawa Turtle Dove, Sennar Penduline Tit, Cricket Warbler, and many other Sahelian specialities.
