Get away for a bird's-eye view

THE CANDIDATES: husband and wife John and Netta, in their 60s. THE CHALLENGE: a week-long birdwatching holiday.

6th August, 2005

THE REQUIREMENTS: John and Netta are keen amateur ornithologists and have pursued their hobby in Britain and Ireland.

For Netta's 60th birthday, the couple want to travel to an exotic location. John writes: “We would like somewhere that combines a good accommodation, good food and the opportunity to see some exotic species in their natural habitat.” Netta's birthday is in October, but they can travel any time.
