This practical session will help you identify different birds and to understand more about them. An expert warden will guide you around the wildlife reserve. The course will focus on birds currently on site, their plumage, calls and behaviour. You’ll get tips on how to watch birds including fieldcraft, what to listen out for and the differences between key species.
WWT London Wetland Centre is a great place to spot bitterns. Another notable bird species is the Cetti's warbler, which, unusually for a warbler, is present all year round. Cetti's warblers rarely nest in central London but bred here for the first time in 2010, raising two broods of chicks on the reserve. We would also expect to see numerous wintering duck species such as shoveler and gadwall, and other seasonal visitors like fieldfares, redwings, mealy and lesser redpolls and siskins. The walk lasts for an hour and a half. Bring your own binoculars/telescope where possible.
