WINTER EVENTS SCHEDULE OUT NOW

Multiple sessions available from 10 Dec 2020 to 26 Jan 2021

The birdlife of our harbour changes dramatically over the winter, with winter migrants in large numbers on our bird feeders and mudflats and our summer visitors a distant memory. This course will enable you to identify our most common and charismatic winter birds, from residents in their ambiguous winter plumage to visitors from continental Europe. Physical feature identification will be complemented with characteristic behaviours and bird calls, so you have a full arsenal of techniques to be a confident winter birder! And to ensure you’re prepared on your bird watching ventures, we will give you the inside info on where to find different winter species and the best times of winter to spot them.

These two-part courses will be split over a theory and practical learning session, allowing you to put into practice your new birding skills.

These courses are suitable for beginners and anyone who wishes to start birding as a new hobby
