Next Term's Wildlife 2: Warblers

Grasshopper Warbler Whitethroat

Lesser Whitethroat
Sedge Warbler
Reed Warbler Blackcap Garden Warbler

Willow Warbler

Non-birding experts tend to find Warblers difficult, but my course starting in a fortnight's time will help you differentiate your Chiffchaffs from your Willow Warblers; your singing Garden Warblers from your singing Blackcaps, & singing Reed Warblers from singing Sedge Warblers. We will spend time learning the visual & vocal differences of this large & varied family, so that by the end of this summer session you should be able to tell me whether you are looking at a Common Whitethroat or the slightly less common Lesser Whitethroat. They are not just Little Brown Jobs, but are an integral and interesting part of the May birdsong. By the end of the course you will just love Warblers! See panel on the right for course details!
