Group birdingA new venture we are looking into for are day tours. These will be half or full day tours on a weekend to destinations within a few hours of Sheffield.

Each tour will concentrate on a particular habitat or group of birds. Often we come across birders who struggle with particular groups of birds or topics such as bird song or warbler identification. So we thought we might help. With small groups (max 8 people per leader) we will show you the birds we are concentrating on and in a relaxed atmosphere tell you how to identify the birds by sight and sound.

The day courses can be purchased individually or save £15 and book them all for £85.


February- "Winter Birds"- A morning looking at winter birds of woods, fields & water near Dinnington. Details to be confirmed.

March- "Raptors"- A morning in mid-March looking at raptors in the Peak District. Details to be confirmed.

March- "Woodland Birds"- A morning tour in late March looking, listening & identifying woodland birds near Sheffield. Details to be confirmed.

April- "Bird Song"- An early morning start looking and listening to a dawn chorus near Sheffield. Details to be confirmed.
