Introduction to birdwatching at Belfairs

24th November 2019 @ 9:30 am - 11:00 am

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every 2 weeks that begins at 9:30 am on Sunday, repeating until 22nd December 2019

Join local birder and former Two Tree Island warden, Mark Bridges and Belfairs ranger Tristan for an introduction to birdwatching at Belfairs Nature Reserve

There are three sessions, each with a different theme:

  1. the first session on the 24th of November will introduce some basic ID skills and birdwatching techniques;
  2. the second session on the 8th of December will focus on optics;
  3. the final session on the 22nd of December will provide an introduction to recording your sightings.

Every session will involve a walk in the woods to have a look for some of our beautiful birds, so dress appropriately for being outdoors for in winter.

This is no charge for these sessions, although donations are always welcome. Our aim is to encourage new people aged 14+ to start birdwatching.
