Bird Watching

Course Details

Our Birdwatching courses include field trips to local sites, but if weather is poor we meet in a classroom at the Lymington Community Centre for relevant slide shows.

You will gain increased confidence in identifying birds and their calls, and develop an understanding of habitats and a wider appreciation of the wonderful area that we live in.

Information & Support

The course is suitable for anyone who can walk up to 3 miles on country paths. It is informative and fun and there is no assessment involved. Beginners are welcome.

You will need to bring binoculars, a notebook and pen.

Please wear dark colours and for your safety and comfort wear sturdy waterproof footwear.
