Event description

Description

Join famed ornithologist, Peter Holden MBE to identify common British birdsong and find out why birds sing.

Peter is the author of the RSPB handbook and pioneered the RSPB's Young Ornithologists Club (now Wildlife Explorers) after co-presenting TV programme, Big Garden Birdwatch in 1979 with Bill Oddie. Peter recently collaborated with his son Andy to create an art exhibition which has featured on 6 Music, and he has also developed an RSPB bird identification app.

Peter's much sought-after workshops are very entertaining and informative, so prepare to have a lot of fun while learning!

............................................................................................................

During this workshop we'll be:

- identifying common British birds
- listening to examples of birdsong and learning tips to recognise each song
- exploring the purpose of birdsong

The following morning (very early indeed) a DAWN CHORUS WALK will take place*. We'll be able to put all our identification skills to practice!
