Members' only event: coastal bird identification on the Solway

Location: Gosling Sike, Houghton Road, Carlisle, Cumbria, CA3 0LD
A day in-class and outdoors with Mike Douglas of South Lakes Ecology. This area is an ideal place to watch coastal waders and wildfowl. We'll use a variety of techniques and learning aids to identify the different birds. Out in the field, identification of distant birds will be made easier by concentrating on the most relevant ID features, looking at bird 'jizz' and by comparison species as yardsticks. This course is aimed at those with some prior experience of birding who are looking to improve their skills
