Tuesday Birdwatching Club: Bird song at Adel Dam Spring is almost upon us and, by this time, many of our resident birds are singing to announce their breeding territory and attract a mate. This 2 hour session will focus on bird songs and calls and we’ll be listening carefully for one of our first spring migrants, the chiffchaff, singing from the top of a tall tree. £15 per person including refreshments. Transport Due to position of the site, we will meet at 8:50am in the main Golden Acre Park car park on Otley Road (A660). A pick-up can be provided by arrangement. What to expect Easy walking on made up paths. Be prepared for muddy ground. There are 2 hides at Adel Dam and cafe and toilets at Golden Acre Park. Note for beginners If you’re struggling to see birds through your binoculars, you’ll learn quickly how to use them with speed and accuracy and discover some useful techniques for watching birds in the field. You’ll also learn how to identify birds by their songs and calls.Please don’t buy binoculars especially for the trip as these can be provided on request. You’ll be able to get advice about binoculars, what to buy and the best places to make a purchase. What to wear The trick to keeping warm in the winter is by wearing plenty of layers and ensuring you’re waterproof. Wear base layers (thermal vests and leggings), fleeces and walking trousers. Please don’t wear jeans as they will wick moisture from low growing vegetation and it is impossible to dry them out. Bring a waterproof coat, over-trousers and sturdy, waterproof boots. Scarf, gloves and hat are essential and it’s a good idea to carry spare socks and gloves. Join me on more trips and learn about each bird’s story whether it migrates or stays in the UK the time of year when it can be seen the types of habitats preferred by different species how birds adapt to their environment.
