What you will learn
So you think all birds are little brown jobs and you struggle with spotting the differences between them? Can you hear that they sound different but struggle to remember the calls?
All you need is an expert guide and tutor to help you focus, develop observation skills and note their key features.
The number of species and the range in shape, colour and call may surprise you.
Come and gain an enormous amount of pleasure and knowledge from observing and learning about birds in the wonderful habitats of Mid Wales.
The majority of the course will take place outside, observing a wide range of species in a variety of habitats.
