All species of bird produce unique vocalisations. This Study Day will provide a fascinating insight into the reasons why birds make the sounds they do.  Participants will be given tips on how to identify the various species by the distinctive sounds they make (songs, contact, alarm and flight calls).

A fairly early start will increase our chances of hearing a variety of species in song.  The first part of the morning will be spent at Bossenden Woods, mature oak woodland with an excellent range of resident birds including all three species of woodpecker, marsh tit, treecreeper and nuthatch.

Later in the morning by contrast we will experience the sight and sounds of wetland birds at Oare Marshes Local Nature Reserve.

Led by Tony Swandale, Ornithologist
