Winter Birds

This course is an excellent introduction to bird watching, birds being relatively easy to see in their winter habitat. Martin Rule, freelance ecologist and British Trust for Ornithology (BTO) surveyor, will take us for a walk around the National Trust’s Loe Pool to survey the birdlife of both woodland and water, overwintering and resident. There are a variety of habitats to found around the pool including the cliff, beach and sea at Loe Bar making this one of the best sites for an introduction to a wide variety of winter birds. Please note that there is a substantial amount of walking involved.
