Have you ever wondered how to tell the difference between the birds that you see? Ever been confused by bird songs and calls? Wanted to improve your knowledge and fieldcraft? A Northern Experience Beginners Birdwatching course is just the thing for you.
With a tutor who is a former teacher and passionate about birdwatching and education you’ll have access to nearly 40 years of knowledge and experience. Our Beginners Birdwatching courses each comprise two ½ day sessions (with the two sessions covering different aspects/areas) and the main topics are determined by the time of year;
Dates for 2011
April 23/30: Bird songs and calls
July 29/30: Wader identification
October 15/16 Migration
November 12/13: Winter wildfowl
Each session costs £30/person, or book both sessions on one topic for £50/person.
Great day even though we didn't get across to Holy Island because of the high winds and seas! Enjoyed very good views of brent geese, shelduck, grey plovers, wigeon, bar-tailed godwit and much more from a hide near Fenham. Martin was very knowledgable and helped me identify more than 12 species of birds that I'd never seen before.
Thanks Martin for a very enjoyable and informative day. Jane Brook, Northumberland (Lindisfarne Safari Day)
