2 day course ¦ Price: £150
The course will provide you with a ‘toolkit’ of bird identification techniques to enable you to begin or continue your journey with bird recognition. You will learn how to identify birds, making close observations to allow you to recognise different bird species. You will learn how to use binoculars, learn which bird characteristics to look for as well as how to conduct a simple bird survey. All these tools will assist you with your own bird identification while also equipping you with techniques you can use to show other people how they too can identify birds.
By the end of the course we aim to get you familiar with a small number of common bird species, recognising their shape, song, call, and colour variations. This basic skill will give you the basis for comparison whatever species you may encounter in the future, If you are already familiar with birds, we aim to extend your knowledge while allowing time to focus your observations on the detail of particular species.
