About

There’s a lot more to the birds we encounter during 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 understanding of birds for personal enjoyment.

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

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