A large number of different habitats exist in the Lake District, from high mountain to deep lakes. .This means that the variety of wildlife found among them is also wide. This session walks two transects through differing habitats typical of the Lake District and looks at the birds found within them. The session also helps with simple bird identification, habitat guides and birdwatching techniques which can be incorporated into walks or guided activities within the Lake District. Participants should learn more about the birds and habitats that they are likely to encounter in the National Park.
