Learning the Language

 of the Birds

 Would you like to locate a Tawny Owl in its day roost? Can you imagine knowing a Sparrowhawk is in the area without having seen or heard it? Have you ever fully experienced the wonder of the dawn chorus? Would you know if the birds gave away the whereabouts of a nearby Deer?

All this and more is possible with an understanding of bird language.

Set in a beautiful location on Dartmoor, the weekend will give you the basic framework and tools necessary to appreciate the secret world of birds.

With 2 experienced instructors Rick Lockwood and Ollie Hornbeam.
