The complete package – gain confidence identifying birds by sight and sound, with plenty of opportunities to put what you have learned into practice. The location provides us with the perfect opportunity to concentrate on waders and coastal birds.


Our weekend residential courses in 2018 cost £250. The price includes teaching, materials, refreshments and full board and lodgings from a cooked evening meal on Friday to packed lunch on Sunday. Entry fees to reserves are not included so don't forget to bring any relevant membership cards.

A non-residential price of £170 is also available, which includes packed lunches and evening meals but not bed or breakfast. Please ask for more details, though note that there are both pre-breakfast and post-dinner activities.

This excellent venue offers access to a huge range of birds, habitats and reserves. Led by renowned ornithologist and accomplished tutor Steve Piotrowski, the course will start with visual identification of common species, with a particular focus on waders in the Morecambe Bay area. There will be several outdoor sessions, with plenty of opportunities to build your confidence identifying birds in their natural habitats! Formal taught sessions help reinforce the learning and participants are encouraged to learn from each other as well. – 01786 458021
