Birds of Cattawade Marshes

Visiting a variety of habitats around Flatford Mill, participants will explore marshland, grassland and the River Stour itself as the group make best use of local weather conditions to watch and discover more about the local avifauna. The emphasis will be on helping everyone feel more confident about identifying birds and understanding behaviour. The course is equally suitable for those new to birdwatching and those with more experience.
