FSC Margam, Field Studies Council 01639 895636 email@example.com www.field-studies-council.org/shop/courses/autumn-bird-watching/
We will spend most of our time outdoors exploring a variety of habitats, which no doubt will be a mixture of brief encounters and longer views that will enable us to study birds behaving naturally feeding, flocking, even evading any predators (fingers crossed) and other behaviours. We will observe birds stealthily and focus on aspects of field craft e.g. how to best scan for birds across large open expanses and how not to disturb them.
