HOS "Birding Basics" Workshops

 

Redshank by Gareth ReesWe want to help our members and others to learn birding skills and build on those that they have already, so we have decided to launch a series of occasional workshops under the brand of "Birding Basics". These will be available for a limited number of people each time to ensure that the tutors can each work closely with just a small group of people. At each workshop there should be around five leaders, so we can hopefully help around thirty people every time. Workshops will be repeated from time to time to make sure that everybody who wants to attend can do so. There will be a small charge to cover basic costs. 

 

We are keen to help you to improve your birding skills and knowledge, so please let us know if there is any particular training that you would like to see provided.

 

Our first event is available for booking now:

 

"Birding Basics" Wader Workshop - Saturday 2nd December 0930-1400

 

This Workshop, based at Normandy Marshes near Lymington, will start with a classroom session in which the tutors will explain some birding basics, and run through the various waders that can be found in Hampshire. After two talks and and question and answer session attendees will be taken out onto the marshes where they will be shown the waders and other birds that are present.

 

Cost: HOS Members £5, non-members £17 (but includes HOS membership for the year)

 

Availability is limited to 30 people on this occasion.

 

FULLY BOOKED - another course will be run in 2018
