About the event

The first part of the morning will be a classroom session at Abbotts Hall Farm looking at topics as varied as choosing the right binoculars and telescope, when and where to look for birds, fieldcraft, technical skills and bird identification. This will be followed by a short walk to the Wetland Hide to put the theory into practice. After lunch we will take a longer walk around the farm in search of more birds.
