Description

Walk with local bird experts Allen Stevens and Sally Taylor and learn to identify our birds and their songs

Join Nature Recovery Network’s Basic Bird Identification walk with experienced local birders, Allen Stevens and Sally Taylor. The walk will be the seventh in a series of bird surveying opportunities for NRN birding beginners. Walks start at 9.00am at the Fishponds Car Park and finish by 11.00am. Anyone who can only do an hour can finish at the half-way stop. Please bring binoculars if you have them.

These walks take place at the change of seasons with NRN's local birding experts. They are at a relaxed pace with regular stops, so are suitable for all ages. The main aim is to help anyone who is interested in getting a bit more familiar with basic bird recognition, song/calls and the best places to spot them.

Those of you who are not already members of NRN, we'd love you to join (£10 per year) in order to enjoy this workshop and many others for free. If you'd rather not join just yet, we ask you to pay £5 for this Bird Walk. This is partly because, although we all give our services for free, NRN has significant costs to do what is is doing for our local nature. Also, these workshops are usually oversubscribed and we have found that people sign up and then don't turn up, depriving someone else of the opportunity (to join NRN see below).

We look forward to sharing some time with you in the Great Outdoors!

Please click here and give our local wildlife a present by becoming an NRN member! Not only will you be supporting compost/tool purchase etc. but you will get free access to all our survey workshops and discounted rates for workshops that we charge for.

Allen and Sally lead Eynsham's Bird Survey Group. Allen has been a keen birder for as long as he can remember. He was fortunate to be able to continue this interest as a postgraduate student, completing a DPhil on the ‘Food Storing behaviour of Marsh Tits’, with fieldwork in Wytham Woods. As well as helping with the NRN bird surveys around Eynsham he also is a volunteer with the BTO, participating in the annual national breeding bird survey.


Sally is born and brought up in Eynsham and there is nothing she doesn't know about the habits and whereabouts of Eynsham's birds.
