Event description
Making baby birds: nest finding and recording

About this event

The importance of monitoring breeding birds for conservation will be explored in the field; also discussion on where birds breed; how to find nests; how to record nests including casual finds; ethics and law in nest-finding. Leader: Raymond Duncan, Grampian Ringing Group

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 ask that all participants are fully Covid-19 vaccinated in line with prevailing NHS guidelines and that you follow the guidance of the leader(s) 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.
