Are you new to birdwatching or interested in taking it up? Join the team at RSPB Lochwinnoch for the ideal workshop to introduce beginners to this fantastic hobby! Learn more about common birds and pick up tips and advice on wildlife watching techniques. Gain advice on how to use binoculars and scopes and how to choose printed resources to help you confidently identify wildlife. This workshop will focus on birds that feature in the top of our Big Garden Birdwatch each year as well as others found around the reserve. After this we’ll head out onto the reserve to put your new skills into practice. You don’t even need your own binoculars, as they are available to hire from the shop! Online booking essential.
Outdoor elements of this event will stick to reserve trails and public footpaths. Walks will vary in length depending on route taken and weather but should not exceed 2.5 miles. People must come suitably attired for the weather and wearing appropriate footwear. Unsuitably attired people may not be permitted to go on the walk. Stout footwear and clothing suitable for the Scottish outdoors are strongly recommended.
