The Bird Watching Tram

Join us for a ride through two beautiful nature reserves, Seaton Marshes and Colyford Common, next to the glorious River Axe estuary, which plays host to an ever-changing selection of birds through the seasons. Seaton Tramway's Bird Watching Trips give you exclusive access to remote parts of the valley; you are likely to see between 30 and 50 different species of bird during your 2-hour trip. 

PLEASE NOTE: This experience may be subject to Covid-Restrictions and will remain subject to change. Cancellations will result in a full refund or option to move dates.

Some people like to make lists of birds seen and most seem happy if some of the favourites, like kingfishers, little egrets or birds of prey are seen. You can always expect a range of waders, ducks and gulls. Autumn can bring a passing osprey or wood sandpiper and numbers build up in winter as wigeon, teal, lapwing and black-tailed godwits arrive. The evocative calls of curlew, redshank, wigeon and teal add another dimension and as spring arrives warblers add their songs and shelduck carry out their courtship displays.

DON'T MISS OUT on a chance to find out which bird you are looking at and view the Axe Estuary Wetlands.

The trips will be led by local experts who know the estuary well, answer your questions and help you to complete a checklist of birds for you to take away.

* Steve Waite has lived in the Axe Valley for 25 years, studying and photographing the birds and wildlife on Estuary for much of that time. He has seen a total of 258 species of birds locally, with his findings published on his wildlife blog Axe Birding. Steve served as Devon County Bird Recorder for five years, is a licensed Bird Ringer, an Ambassador for a leading optics and camera manufacturer and has authored numerous articles on birdwatching and bird identification.

* Donald Campbell, is a life time bird watcher, is President of the Axe Vale & District Conservation Society and author of The Encyclopaedia of British Birds. He is a volunteer warden on the Wetlands and a Trustee of Natural Seaton.
