The winter months are a good time to start learning bird song. We’ll differentiate between robin and wren songs and listen for great tit, mistle thrush and song thrush singing in the woodland. If the weather is favourable we may be able to hear goldcrest singing and we’ll also be looking out for nuthatch, great spotted woodpecker and treecreeper. The surrounding habitat includes farmland and a fishing pond to add some species to our list and birch and alder trees might give us siskin and redpoll. Price £15 per person including refreshments. Transport No transport for this session. We will meet at 8:50am in the main Golden Acre Park car park on Otley Road (A660). What to expect Easy walking on made up paths. Be prepared for muddy ground. There are 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 Wear plenty of layers and waterproof outer clothing including over-trousers and sturdy boots. No jeans please as they will wick moisture from low growing vegetation. Scarf, gloves and hat will be needed 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.
