This course is designed to help you to find out more about bird identification and bird migration and the species likely to be encountered during migration periods. It is aimed equally at anyone who is a newcomer to birdwatching and those who wish to improve their skills in wild bird identification. It will also emphasise the adaptations of birds to their preferred habitats and lifestyles. We will explore migration marking techniques including: ringing, colour marking, and radio and satellite tracking. Weather permitting, we will organise bird ringing demonstrations at the Flatford ringing site.
