Wirral is blessed with a wide range of different landscapes, including woods, farmland, reed beds, salt marsh, extensive beaches and lowland heath. The varying habitats are used by many different species, making the region an excellent base for bird watching.

 

Next Indoor meeting - "Bird Jizz explained" - Hugh Stewart - Thursday 22nd June 2017 (8.00 pm to 9.30 pm)

Do you struggle to tell a Teal from a Tufted Duck; or a Dunlin from a Knot?

In Hugh’s illustrated presentation he will demonstrate a technique to help you identify the birds you may see.

He will take you on a journey around Wirral, using photos of some of our local birds and explain how species may be separated by looking at their size, shape and behaviour.

This illustrated presentation will take place at Kingsmead School Hall, Bertram Drive, Hoylake, CH47 0LL

Visitors are very welcome, and the charge is £4.00, which includes light refreshments.

The attached photograph was taken by Hugh.
