Please note: I have taken all care in attempting to place each sighting location accurately within the tour. However, in some cases complete accuracy is not possible. For example, the location description may be vague or ambiguous. In some cases I may have made an error of judgement. Users of the tour are advised to satisfy themselves of the accuracy of the data before acting on it and WLMD cannot accept responsibility for any losses suffered through inaccuracies. Corrections to the data are welcomed.
