Find out by joining avid birders, husband and wife team, Bob Highcock and Jean Hampson who have been our guides on this tour in the past.

It supports one of the world’s most spectacular concentrations of gulls, with 21 species recorded and one-day counts of over 100,000 individuals. Having migrated south from Greenland and the Canadian Arctic, they feed on alewives, shiners and other small fish in the rushing open water. ‍ Cost: $95.00 all inclusive
