Develop your spring bird identification skills with bird expert Ed Drewitt. 

Throughout the day, a mix of indoor and outdoor tuition will give you the opportunity to learn a variety of common birds found across Brandon Marsh. Many of our summer migrants, such as the chiffchaff, blackcap and reed warbler have just arrived, birdsong is in full flow, Arctic-breeding wading birds are passing through and water birds such as gadwall and mallard are in their colourful breeding plumage. This course, designed for relative beginners and those wanting to develop their identification further will start off indoors looking at visual and sound identification before spending time outdoors looking and listening in the field. We will also look at how our birds can be recorded for science and how you can get more involved with monitoring birdlife on reserves such as Brandon Marsh.
