Develop your bird watching skills
The BTO can help you develop your birdwatching skills and teach you the skills required to participate in our surveys. We run training courses each year where you can learn bird id and the skills required to participate in bird surveys. We also run training courses aimed at intermediate birdwatchers to help them develop their skills further.
For tips on how to identify British birds, visit our bird ID pages. A new species will be featured here each month.
