Wildlife Lectures & Photography

Ornithology

This course should suit anyone wanting to start the study of birds as well as those who want to get more out of their bird watching than simply twitching. Identification skills will be an important aspect but we shall look into many aspects of avian biology, enabling us to delve more deeply into the worlds of evolution, ecology, genetics and behaviour.

The course detail will be fleshed out nearer the start, as will the links and quizzes.
