If you will be aged 12–18 in May 2019 and are considering a career in conservation or ornithology, BTO Bird Camp is a great opportunity to develop your skills and meet like-minded people! The event aims to inspire young naturalists with amazing experiences and special insights into birds and conservation, through a weekend full of birding, ringing, nest-finding and friend-making. You can get a flavour it through the Bird Camp 2018 review on the Cameron Bespolka Trust website.
Accommodation is in our own glamping village at The Nunnery in Thetford. During the weekend we'll explore the Nunnery Lakes reserve, where we'll experience ringing, nest-recording and other bird monitoring activities. We’ll also visit the nearby RSPB Lakenheath Fen reserve, home to Cranes, Bitterns, Marsh Harriers and much more besides. Nearby, we'll search for Breckland specialities including Stone-curlew, Woodlark and Nightjar. You’ll be accompanied throughout the weekend by an experienced team of BTO staff and volunteers – a combination birders, naturalists and scientists – all eager to share their knowledge and skills.
