Bird Watching for Beginners – Farmland


12 Mar 2017 9am – 1pm

Experience the joy of bird watching in a relaxed series of courses and learn how to find and identify common species of birds to start off this fascinating hobby. You can take each course individually or several courses to build your knowledge of different bird species and their habitats.

The farmland in the heart of the Hampshire Downs can be alive with birds. In this workshop you will visit farmland around Cheriton with its network of paths and good hedgerows for a variety of bird species. The farmland can hold good flocks of finches, buntings and winter thrushes. You may even have the good fortune to spot birds of prey, including Red Kite.

Discover when and where to find birds and understand how they use the environments they live in. We will visit special places to find birds and look at how you can find birds in your local area. We will look at identification but with no pressure to get it right. And always remember, there is no such thing as a stupid question!
