The entire experience was superlative. Megan is enthusiastic, well organized, and incredibly knowledgeable about the various species of plants, butterflies, and especially birds (including a pair of out-of-season Great Northern Divers) that we saw mid-July, 2019.
Matt Guthrie was especially impressed by Megan’s ability to identify birds by their songs. We took both the Hoxa and Northside walks, which were ideal for two moderately fit older birders.
Wild Orkney Walks is highly recommended.
Fantastic Puffin Walk
We did a walk with Megan today it was fantastic, she was knowledgeable with the birdlife and flowers and has amazing eyesight to spot a Puffin and other birds from a mile away. We could not think of a more lovely way to spend an afternoon in Orkney.
An Enjoyable Day
Thanks for the bird list, Megan, & for a most enjoyable day on Orkney. Lovely to meet you, & we wish you all the best for your Wild Orkney Walks.
A Fantastic Walk!
What a fantastic walk! Megan met us and we walked past fields filled with the birdsong of waders and skylarks that you just don’t hear at home. We emerged onto the coast and had stunning views over Scapa Flow and were able to wander round the gun placements and buildings from the WW’s. Megan gave us an excellent insight into the wildlife and history of this area which helped give us an understanding that we wouldn’t have gained if we’d been on our own. We didn’t feel rushed, soaking up the atmosphere and enjoying watching some amazing wildlife – Megan is a wonderful guide. Thank you so much Megan, we’ll be back!
Thank you for an excellent day of nature watching. We thoroughly enjoyed our trip to Hoy with Wild Orkney Walks. Whilst the star species was obviously the White-tailed Eagles (and chicks!), it was amazing to be shown such a profusion of other wildlife too.
