Event description
An exploration of bird sounds and how to study them.

About this event

We will explore why and how birds make their evocative sounds; get tips on how to learn bird calls and song; discover how to record sounds with mobile phones and other equipment in practical sessions in the field and find out how to see and analyse sounds on a computer. We will also look at surveying with passive sound recorders and see what was picked up from overnight recordings made nearby. Perhaps some owls or Woodcock? Leaders: Mark Lewis and Alan Knox

This is part of the Aberdeen Birding Calendar 2022, a unique series of events for beginners and experienced birders alike.

ABC - The Aberdeen Birding Calendar is an exciting, different, programme of outdoor gatherings for those new to birding as well as lifelong enthusiasts. Enjoyable field meetings where you can explore particular topics in a bit more depth, meet like-minded people, share experience and hopefully have a good day out!

A skilled leader will briefly introduce each topic and co-ordinate a field outing. The trips will have a short session to set the scene for the day, and/or as a follow-up review.

Everyone is welcome - Whether you are just starting out or can share your experience on an enjoyable day. You don’t need to be a member of the SOC.

We request that everyone is fully Covid-19 vaccinated in line with prevailing NHS guidelines and that everyone follows the guidance of the leader on the day.

Dates may be changed due to the weather. The length of the outing will vary depending on the weather, how many birds are around and the enthusiasm of the group to continue!

Please bring suitable clothing and footwear and take care on roads, steep or slippery surfaces.
