steveswatman's review

i stayed at a place for a good price, great food and totally loved been driven to different sites each day to view differnrt terrein and the birds that are attracted to each area, i especially liked the view of the lamagiers, massive graceful creatures but amazingly agile, when you see then and kites vieing for food and their arial displays you just know what birds really are, i recommend you contact www.faunus.co.uk for more information, by the way the lamagier feeding site is totally secret.


  • lots of birds
  • the owner of the place even climbs 30 km a week to deliver bones to a secret spot which attracts lamagiers.


  • out of the way of towns and cities
  • very secluded
