Derbyshire Days and 360˚Holidays


the Balkans and Spain 2020

Page 1

Several years ago I began a programme of private courses and holidays with partners in Greece and Spain. To this we have now added weekend

breaks in my home county Derbyshire.



I call the whole programme '360 Degrees' because the aim is to take the broadest possible approach to looking at wildlife and nature. Birds are always at the heart of our activities, but we also enjoy butterflies and spiders, flowers and fungi, reptiles and mammals; in short, all parts of nature. Yet it is not only that we look at everything, we also explore their role in the cultural lives of the area.



The key is to take our time, to savour it all without regard for targets or species lists; and from this, hopefully, will flow the richest, most creative reponse to place and nature.


If you click the drop-down menu above, the three separate weeks will be revealed. You can also use the contact form on the Home menu. There are detailed PDFs for all holidays on request.



    i hope you will think about joining me....
