The spectacular glacial landscape of the Clyde Sea provides a surprising range of habitats in a small area. From the Isle of Cumbrae, upland, coastal, and pelagic bird species are all within easy reach. In winter, the sheltered Clyde is a haven for wildfowl and a vital staging point for waders. This weekend course is a unique opportunity to get to grips with our wintering waders and sea ducks, passage migrants, and west coast specialities.

Jack Lucas is a knowledgeable marine biologist having conducted marine mammal research in four countries, and with a degree in the subject. He is also a qualified Passive Acoustic Monitoring operator and Marine Mammal Observer. He has a passion for birds and marine orgnanisms, and works on Cumbrae as an FSC tutor for much of the year so knows the local sites well. Extra nights If you are interested in staying at the Centre for additional nights, before or after the course, please contact the Centre for availability and costs which start from £35 for B&B, or £42.50 full board. Partner Rate For those paying the sole occupancy price, we are offering our guests a special rate for those who would like a twin room for them and their partner not enrolled on an FSC course, at £42.50 per night for dinner, bed and breakfast.
