A Beginner’s Guide to Bird Watching – Sunday June 19th – 10am – 4:30pm

This course will cover everything you need to know to take up bird watching as a hobby, as well as providing practical advice on making your garden more bird friendly. You will learn to identify birds by sight and by song and how to choose the right binoculars for you. The day will be very interactive and will involve several walks around the 20 acre site to practice the skills you will be learning. The tutor is a Conservation Ranger with the National Parks and Wildlife Service (NPWS) and has over 10 years previous experience of working for BirdWatch Ireland. Bring binoculars if you have them.
