Bird Brain UK provides training on any ornithological matter. We can train you on the different techniques for surveying birds, from breeding bird surveys to wildfowl counts to migration studies to windfarms or specific species such as Barn Owls or Black Redstarts. We can work on your field skills whether you wish to learn a new group for example raptors or gulls or just improve all round.
Each training session is designed to gain the maximum information on the day, so it is a mixture between theory and practical sessions. The participants can then test out their new skills in the field with expert tutors.
You can join our up coming events or contact us for any specific training you or your organisation require.
A wide variety of lectures are also available for your local group whether is it wildlife specific or not you will enjoy the, at times humorous, interactive talk.
