Friday birdwatching club: Fairburn Ings, Lin Dyke Our first Friday breakfast birdwatching class of 2017 will take place at RSPB Fairburn Ings. We’ll approach the site from Lin Dyke at the Castleford end of the reserve and start at 10am. We’ll look for wetland and woodland birds along the paths, channels and lagoons. Peregrine falcon, willow tit and green woodpecker are our target birds. Contact me for breakfast arrangements. Booking essential, £15 per person including refreshments. Transport available Meet me at 8:00am the Moor Allerton Centre on the Leeds ring road if you’d like transport to the venue. What to expect Easy walking on flat ground. Most paths are well made but it may be muddy. There is one hide. Facilities are available at the visitor centre at Fairburn Ings, a short drive away. Refreshments are available at the end of the walk. 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.
