About us

Our history

Why Not Birds? Albicilla Explorer is Bente and Uffe (a.k.a. BEST & UDA or just B&U), who are both avid birders - or birdwatchers, as most people would probably call it. We like to share our experiences about some of the best things to do and enjoy in life: Birdwatching and travel!

Our mission

Why Not Birds? Can you imagine a world without birds? We can't! By sharing our joy for birds - spiced with stories about birdwatching experiences in Denmark and elsewhere in the world - we want to inspire others to go out into nature and watch birds. We know it can be hard to get started. When and where do you see the most birds and how do you identify the bird species? All this you can get wiser on if you go on one of our birdwatching tours - you get a unique birdwatching experience together with an experienced birdwatcher - and hopefully feel like seeing even more birds.

Your birding tourguide

Can you imagine a world without birds? I can't! I have been an avid and passionate birdwatcher from an early age, and therefore have many years of experience in birdwatching. I have extensive local knowledge of the birdlife of Møn and Nyord and all the sites where we arrange birdwatching tours. In addition to being a birdtour guide, I also participate in monitoring and ringing of birds. Furthermore, I am a blogger writing about birds and travels. Uffe Damm Andersen

Small groups

Allways small groups with max. 4 people on tours. The perfect choice for you who like to go on tours alone, with friends or family. *Are you a family of more than 4 people, then contact us to hear about the options.

What to bring

Binoculars, if you have. It is possible to borrow binoculars. Good footwear and practical clothing are recommended. On our birdwatching tours of two hours or longer, we take a "coffee break" with time to enjoy a cup of coffee/tea. Therefore, you are welcome to bring drinks (coffee/tea/water...) and maybe. a small snack. Your birding tourguide brings a bird fieldguide and on most tours also a spotting scope.
