The Wonders of Wildlife ID Sessions: Autumn Birds with Ed Drewitt
29 October 2019, 10:00 - 16:00 ( Add to calendar )
|Throughout the day, a mix of indoor and outdoor tuition will give you the opportunity to learn a variety of common autumn birds found across Brandon Marsh during the autumn. Winter migrants such as redwing and fieldfare will be arriving, wading birds such as godwits and plovers will be passing through or stopping off, and male ducks will be moulting into their colourful plumages. Alongside roving tit and finch flocks, there will be plenty to find and observe.
This course, designed for relative beginners and those wanting to develop their identification further will start off indoors looking at visual and sound identification before spending time outdoors looking and listening in the field. We will also look at how our birds can be recorded for science and how you can get more involved with monitoring birdlife on reserves such as Brandon Marsh.
