About the event
The morning session will be spent indoors covering a variety of topics, including those listed below, with a morning break. Drinks can be purchased in the Visitor Centre café.
After lunch there will be a walk around the reserve with its excellent viewing hides, putting into practice some of the topics covered in the morning session whilst generally assisting participants with bird identification.
Aspects of good field craft, bird finding and identification will be covered, together with a detailed look at birdwatching in Kent.
Binoculars and telescopes - why some are much better suited to birdwatching than others and there will be an opportunity to try them out.
Field guides and other identification aids (digital, audio and video) will be discussed as well as other topics such as bird photography, digi-scoping, record keeping and birdwatching etiquette.
