An introduction to birdsong, what it means and how to become more familiar with it. Appreciating birdsong adds a new dimension to any walk, whether in town or country. This short one-day course will celebrate the National Dawn Chorus Day (the following day) and suggest ways of appreciating this natural phenomenon – even with Covid restrictions.
The course will be in two sessions: 10.30 – 12.30 and 1.30 – 3.30. In addition to bird song, we will consider how birds prepare for the breeding season, the purpose of their song and other calls, and hear examples of songs of some of our more common species along with suggested ways to remember them. A full programme will be sent to participants before the day.
