Super Spurn!

It is not yet too late to book for the Autumn Course starting next week. We visit a different local wildlife hotspot each week and identify all the birds and as much other wildlife as we can. Each session lasts at least 2 hours. During the early weeks of the Autumn Course we pay special attention to migrating birds along the coast, but later switch our attention to waders and wildfowl at inland locations. The course runs twice daily Tuesday to Friday. At the moment there are vacancies on Tues pm, Weds pm, Thurs am, Fri am & one space on Fri pm. If you are interested in more details of the course, please leave a comment next to one of my posts or email me on mflowers81@live.co.uk
