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.

What to wear May can be difficult to assess in terms of temperature so bring plenty of layers and waterproof clothing. Please don’t wear jeans as they will wick moisture from low growing vegetation. Bring a waterproof coat, over-trousers and sturdy, waterproof boots. Scarf, gloves, hat and sunscreen may be needed and it’s a good idea to carry sunscren, insect repellent and water.
