Birding for Beginners

Sunday 7 April to Sunday 6 October

9am -12pm

Price: £15 (£12 RSPB members)

Booking essential

Join Andy Chapman on this wildlife walk around Fairburn Ings to learn more about the birds that make their home here. The walks will change with the seasons; in April and June the focus will be on summer migrants, particularly song birds and how to identify them by sight and sound. In October the focus shifts to how to identify the huge range of ducks and wildfowl which migrate from the North to overwinter.

This is a lovely introduction to the basics of birdwatching and identification, it also includes a bacon, sausage or egg bap and hot drink to warm up and chat at the end.

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