Autumnal Birds

The classes start again on Tuesday, and the birds are certainly migrating.  Here's a male Blackcap feeding on small cotoneaster berries in the garden.  Let's hope we can also find the birds out there in the wild!

At the time of writing there are a couple of vacancies on Wednesday and Friday afternoons.  There are fewer vacancies in the mornings. If you are interested in another session, please ask. 

In the Autumn we'll be looking for special migrants including: Redstarts, Whinchats, Wryneck, Spotted Redshank, Jack Snipe and Hen Harriers. Autumn is also the best time of year to enjoy really good views of Bearded Tits, so we'll be going to see them. 

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 includes mammals, and fungi with 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 on the address above.
