We have been lucky enough to have received 2 Beginners Bird ID sessions. The idea is to give people more confidence to recognise common birds and maybe record them with BTO and certainly to enjoy knowing more about them. Michael Williams has kindly run these sessions with Caroline Harvie and our host Liz Barclay, at Wringford. Michael has put together some very interesting information about the birds you might hear or see at this time of the year, with a link to the songs. Click on the MORE button below for the first two. Claire will keep us informed of future bird ‘training’ events.

Members of the public can also report sightings by email to firstname.lastname@example.org with a photo or on the Great Britain Non-
