Bird Song Weekend @ Kite Rise, Highfield, Rowlands Gill

Durham Wildlife Trust is running our first ever residential weekend providing a fantastic opportunity to get to grips with how to identify bird song. Throughout the weekend our local expert from GEES will deliver indoor sessions to develop an understanding of bird song function and the ‘science’ of listening. This will complement dusk and dawn walks: the best time to tune in to the birds of the Land of Oak & Iron area. The full weekend will run from 1pm Saturday 8th April – 1pm Sunday 9th April. There is no charge for this course as it is part of the Geology & Wildlife Surveyors Project delivered through the Land of Oak & Iron, funded by Heritage Lottery Fund. However we would welcome donations towards an evening meal or attendees are welcome to bring their own food. Breakfast and lunch on the Sunday will be provided. Accommodation is male and female dormitory style rooms so please book early to reserve a place. For more details please email kpollard@durhamwt.co.uk
