Birds for beginners at Minsmere
Minsmere is the perfect place to discover the wonder of birds. Our friendly guides will introduce you to birdwatching, providing tips on choosing the right binoculars or fieldguides, using your binoculars properly, and identifying some of the commoner/easier to spot species.
No previous experience needed. Don’t forget to bring your binoculars or ask at reception about loaning a pair for the day.
