Haytor Visitors Centre car park (SX 765 771)

Non-residential starting from £25.00

About

There’s more to the birds we encounter on a day in the hills than just “Little Brown Jobs”. Join Alex on a guided walk and learn about the types of bird present in our hills, moorlands and mountains.

This workshop will cover:

  • Methods to identify birds common to upland environments, namely by sight and sound
  • How different habitats influence what species we might see and where
  • The impact of seasonality on birds
  • Conservation issues surrounding our feathered friends.

This workshop is orientated towards anyone operating in the upland environment under a professional leadership context; award holders and trainees alike. However, it is also suitable for those wishing to simply increase their own personal understanding of birds.

We will be out for around 3-4 hours. An ‘aide memoire’ will be distributed electronically after the event. This workshop is eligible for MTA, AMI and BAIML  CPD points

Come suitably dressed for a morning on the hill with personal food and drink. Bring binoculars if you have them, a notepad and pen.


Alex Rhodes is an outdoor instructor and naturalist based in the South-West. He has a BSc in Zoology and holds the ML and RCI awards.
