Speckled Wood Wildlife offers you the opportunity to learn and experience a diverse array of nature in Wales, Gloucester/ South West region, and beyond. We specialise in birds, butterflies, dragonflies, moths, and rocky shore wildlife and offer a range of courses and trips through-out the year, along with bespoke trips for individuals and talks/ guided walks for organised groups. We can also help you to develop field skills and improve your photography skills to enhance your wildlife interactions, identification and recording.
Directors & Guides, Drs Roo & Nicky Perkins share their extensive photographic and video libraries to illustrate the courses in a personal and informative way, helping like-minded people to see and enjoy the amazing diversity of nature present in their gardens, their local area and at sites further afield.
Our Values & Mission
We want to inspire others to develop a greater understanding and awareness of the world around them.
We want to be accessible cost-wise & welcoming for families, informal, accessible & friendly.
We operate as tour guides, giving people the option to book accomodation & travel to suit their budgets & needs.
We only use our own photos & videos in our business and love building our collection as we see and enjoy more wildlife.
Our passion is delivering field based days, and we're blessed in Wales to have a range of rich & diverse habitats.
We would love to work with other family run businesses with similar values to us, to help us offer the best experience and opportunities to our customers.
