One of the common problems experienced when watching birds is how to interpret the anatomy of a bird when perched compared to when it is flying. This indoor session looks at the structure of a bird’s wing and how markings and individual feathers are perceived when the wing is folded. You’ll get the opportunity to hold bird wings and to look at some interesting feathers. You’ll also learn how moult and weather affects the appearance of plumage in the field. Price £15 per person including refreshments Transport No transport. Meet at Hollybush Conservation Centre at 19:00. What to expect Indoor sessions take place in the Hollybush TCV classroom.

Join me on more events 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.
