About this course

The course will cover the identification of species in the area including their winter call notes. Particular emphasis will be given to new material becoming available on migration and identification. The lectures will be used to prepare for each outdoor visit with extensive use of photographs, sound recordings, and diagrams to help in the learning of identification and behaviour patterns. The lectures will include a particular topic or species that will be discussed in detail.

There will be five zoom meetings and five field meetings at venues around Northumberland and Tyneside including a whole day visit to Holy Island.

Course attendees will receive a Zoom link ahead of the first session. If you are new to Zoom, you can find more information about using it at their website here. Information on field trips will be shared in each Zoom session.


This is a continuation of a long-running course and is most suitable for those with an existing knowledge of birds. It may be most suitable for those who have attended the course in the past.
