Welcome to the Heatherlea Five-year Holiday Planner!

Plan all your birding holidays up to five years ahead!

This great new tool allows you to create a personalised Holiday Planner, containing any number of tours and departure dates from our website. Choose as many as you like, and when satisfied, save your personalised Planner listing all your birding and wildlife holidays during the next five years!

When ready, send a copy to Heatherlea to lodge your Planner, though you do not need to make any commitment at this stage. We will provisionally reserve your place(s), and contact you to confirm. You can alter your Planner by adding and subtracting tours at any time, though please remember to update Heatherlea with your new choices!

A great new way to plan your birding tours!


Let's get started!

  • First, fill in the form below to create your personalised Holiday Planner.
  • Next, roam around our website (by individual pages or you can use the Calendar function) to identify tour(s) of interest.
  • To select a tour, click the link next to the date of any holiday page to add that departure to your Planner.
  • When you first do this, an orange ‘My Holidays’ button will appear at the top of every webpage. Click this at any time to review your Planner. You can add and subtract holidays as you please.
  • When ready, complete the ‘Lodge my Planner’ section and send to Heatherlea.
  • We will contact you in person to confirm receipt, though this does not constitute a booking, and no payment is needed at this stage.
  • We will contact you again when either the holiday is fully subscribed, or exactly twelve months ahead.
  • At this point you can choose to secure your place(s) by paying a deposit, or remain as 'provisional' (though the holiday may fill without further notice).

Example 1: Created by a 'UK Birder' who wants to visit outlying islands!



Example 2: Created by a 'World Birder' who wants to reserve some 'holidays of a lifetime', without obligation!


It's easy to plan all your birding holidays with Heatherlea!
