We booked our two days with Dave 3 months before our 5 week trip to the Highlands. Dave was near the end of our trip, and we had been birding constantly before meeting up with him.
Day 1: Dave was 5 minutes early for our pick up, and even arranged a personal errand for us into his schedule. As we drove, and Dave heard about where we had already been, his heart kind of sank, as many of those places were on his itinerary. Nevertheless, he managed to take us to many places we had not seen, and even took us back to places we had been, and found more than we ever did, or could.
The highlight of the two day outing was on day 2, the Red Kite feeding station. What a feast for the eyes, and my camera. It really was special.
After driving around Scotland for almost 4 weeks, Dave managed to explain most of what we had seen and not understood, traditions we would never have known about, bird habits and habitats, and so much more.
Dave has been a birder since the age of 7, and he has forgotten more than I will ever know. What a wonderful guide, conversationalist, and host. The coffee and biscuit breaks were all special, and we had quite a few.
If birding is your quest, do yourself a favor and hire Dave, you will not regret it.
