Birding for Beginners

Price: £15 (£12 RSPB Members)

Join Andy Chapman on this wildlife walk around Fairburn Ings to learn more about the birds that make their home here. The walks will cover resident garden, farmland and water birds but will vary with the seasons to include spring/summer breeding migrants and the huge range of ducks and wildfowl which migrate from the North to overwinter. You will learn how to identify birds by sight and sound before returning to the visitor centre for a bacon, sausage or egg bap and hot drink to warm up.

This is a lovely introduction to the basics of birdwatching and identification and is suitable for beginners and those wanting to improve their knowledge.

This walk should last approximately two hours, please dress for the weather with good footwear.
