Bird Calls & Wildlife Tracking

Sun, 14 June 2020 @ 14:00 - 16:30

Experience an eye-opening exploration and bring out the Sherlock Holmes in you as we piece together the evidence on this wildlife detective walk!

Join a certified wildlife tracker on this wildlife walk exploring the fascinating world of woodland birds and animals and the many clues they leave behind. Learning to track gives us a glimpse into the secret lives of the wildlife around us. You will also learn to identify bird calls, and when we add to this ‘bird language’ – the art of interpreting bird calls and behaviour – a whole new world opens up! Learn how to spot owls, sparrowhawks and more by paying close attention to what other birds are up to. Experience an eye-opening exploration and bring out the Sherlock Holmes in you as we piece together the evidence on this wildlife detective walk!
