Bird Watching for Beginners New Forest Coastline


9 Apr 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.

In the New Forrest Coastline workshop you will be visiting Lymington & Keyhaven Marshes to see the variety of bird species attracted to this habitat at this time of year. The cast has changed on the South Hampshire coast and sea. Winter birds can still linger but migrants will be starting to appear. We may have a chance to see flocks of waders, ducks and geese on the marshes, grebes on the sea.
