Enrolling Now for Autumn

Pair of Bearded Tits

Bookings have now started for the 10-week Autumn migration term, which begins on 23rd of September.  At the time of writing there are a couple of vacancies on Tuesday mornings, and both Friday mornings & afternoons. There are fewer vacancies on Wednesdays and Thursdays. If you are interested in another session, please ask.  For at least 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 Autumn we'll be paying special attention to trying to see birds on migration including Whinchats, Red-backed Shrikes, Wrynecks, Ring Ouzels and Redstarts. We'll also be spending some time looking for waders and reedbed birds on the Humber Estuary.  Waders we will be trying to find include Greenshank, Black-tailed Godwits and Spotted Redshank.  Last year the Bearded Tits were very popular, so we'll be making a special event to have close encounters with those again.  So, if you are interested in learning more about your local wildlife in beautiful and secluded 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. This will include mammals, butterflies, dragonflies and wild flowers. 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
