Birdwatching is a very rewarding hobby, but challenging at the same time, with some species and families more than others! In time though you will be able to identify birds from the smallest of glimpses – a flash of a wing, a flick of a tail, and the simplest of calls.
This fourteen-week bird course, run by tutor/organiser: Simon Ginnaw, will provide you with insights into using these techniques, from in your garden to your closest wild place. Looking at different habitats, and the movement and plumage details of the species that can be found there. Enjoy a light- hearted look at bird identification from the comfort of your own home to brighten up this time of the year and the current global situation.
This course will consist of 14 classes via Zoom, from 7pm to approx. 8.30pm, using photos, illustrations, videos and sounds to bring the fascinating subjects alive, with hand-outs given throughout the course via email. Each evening will consist of a 1 hour lecture with a 10 minute break half-way, with approximately 20-30 minutes for a quiz and a summary of our regions bird sightings and other wildlife interest to look out for over the next week.
