Hi Doug

I just wanted to thank you again for your company and for a wonderful day yesterday. Your intimate knowledge of the local birds and the places to find them, and your infectious enthusiasm for the subject, made it a very special experience. Many thanks, all the best for growing the business and I hope we catch up again.

The best way to see a lot of birds in a short time is with a great local guide who likes people. Doug is awesome! We saw 101 birds including 8 lifers in 1 day around Julatten/Mt Molloy/Mossman.
The day went too fast & its easy to recommend Doug as he loves what he does. Plus the customer comes first-no ego. Best wishes Doug and thank you.

Oh. My. God.

We rose at dawn, and were ready for our birding guide Doug Herrington when he arrived promptly at 6:30am. When we began this trip every bird was new to us and we kept track of new sightings only; but as the days passed more and more birds became familiar friends, and Sunday seemed like a good day to keep track of every sighting. (Read between the lines: Doug was keeping our list for the day :-) which made it easy for us to focus on the birds). For the day we logged an astonishing 110 species, of which fully 40 were totally new to us! It brought my count to 195, and Diane has at least 10% more.

Dear Doug

This is a very late mail to thank you so much for kindly showing us a wonderful part of Australia. We had a fantastic time with terrific mammals and birds.

Hi Doug

Thank you so much for the tour yesterday. It was great and I thoroughly enjoyed your company and expertise. I have started planning my next trip up there and have started compiling a list for you. It may take a couple of days of your expertise. I look forward to our next tour. I will contact you soon with dates and a list.

Kind regards

Thank you very much Doug Herrington of Birdwatching Tropical Australia, who guided and drove us in the Julatten region on 2nd of August. His work was excellent, pleasant and very successful.

Dear Doug,

I have been meaning to write to you since our return to Chiangmai 2 1/2 weeks ago. Hab and I just want to thank you for giving us such a lovely day's birdwatching while we were staying at Kingfisher Park. We enjoyed it so much and hope that you enjoyed it too!

With warm regards

We had a great day out with Doug and he found us many species that we would not have found otherwise, Doug was great company all day and looked after us very well. He worked hard to find us new birds even though there were a limited number of species still available and he found all of the birds I had hoped for and a few more as well.

Hi Doug

Just a brief note to thank you once again for a great days birding. I reckon I have increased my life list by a definite 16 (overall total now about 325) after the day out with you with a possible additional 5 (need to check my records at home).
