Birdsong Identification & Dawn Chorus Experience with Peter Holden
12th May 2018 @ 9:30 am - 13th May 2018 @ 6:00 am£35 – £50
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 more recently collaborated with his son Andy to create an art exhibition which has featured on 6 Music, and has developed an RSPB app which you can find here.
Peter’s 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
– putting those skills into practice
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!
