Bookings have now started for the 10-week Spring/Summer term, which begins on 9th of April. Most of the mornings are already full, or almost full, but there are plenty of spaces on Friday pm. If you are interested in another session, please ask. For 2 hours a week encounter the natural world as a completely new sensual experience. You'll be amazed what you'll find just by listening, and not only be looking! In the Spring we'll be paying special attention to learning birdsong and calls. Specific birds we'll be hoping to see include: Bittern, Red Kite, Hobby, Marsh Harrier, Kingfisher, Turtle Dove, Redstart, and nearly 100 other bird species! We'll also be hoping to differentiate around 9 species of Warbler.
We will be visiting 10 wonderful local places for birds, 6 of which are completely new to the groups, even after 9 years of this course. We'll be observing birds at a variety of locations including secluded pools, lowland heaths, bluebell woods, in reedbeds, on the Humber estuary, and on the Yorkshire Wolds, and places that aren't normally open to the general public.
So, if you are interested in learning more about your local wildlife in a range of interesting venues for less than £10 a week, then this is the course for you! We visit a different local hotspot each week and identify all the birds and as much other wildlife as we can. Each session lasts at least 2 hours. The course runs twice daily Tuesday to Friday. If you are interested in more details of the course, or wish to be placed on a waiting list, please leave a comment next to one of my posts or email me on firstname.lastname@example.org
