Understanding British Birds: Peter Holden MBE

"These 12 sessions (10 indoor, 2 optional outings) will explore the behaviour and adaptations of birds - our examples will be mostly of species that will be familiar or frequently found in the British Countryside. We will also look at fascinating subjects of birdsong, nesting, migration and feeding behaviour."
