Woodland Bird ID

Would you like to learn how to differentiate between a Chiffchaff and a Jay? Perhaps you would like to know more about the migration of birds into and out of the UK? Or maybe just walking in the woods and spotting various bird species is what you are after. Experience all of these by spending the day with Ornithologist , Emma Juxon.

She will inspire you with a classroom session in the morning followed by a walk through the ancient woodland in the afternoon.

Tutor Profile – Emma Juxon

A keen and enthusiastic naturalist from an early age, Emma has spent the majority of her life knee-deep, quite literally, in the natural world. Her passion for wildlife lead to a degree in Zoology at Aberystwyth University, fueling her to inspire others about the world around us. Since her degree, Emma has found herself focusing her interests on avifauna and surprisingly for Surrey, cetaceans. From working with the RSPB in the Midlands to the Percy FitzPatrick Institute of African Ornithology on the Western Cape, South Africa; if there’s avian life she’s in her element! In 2014 a scholarship awarded by the Enderby Trust took Emma to the other side of the world with Heritage Expeditions in search of rare and elusive species amongst the jewelled volcanic islands of the South Pacific. Scoring species such as Fiji petrel, Longman’s beaked whale and the thought to be extinct Vanikoro flying fox to name but a few. For the past few years, Emma has been working offshore conducting marine mammal and seabird surveys around the world, something she still takes part in during her spare time, volunteering for ORCA. Now finding herself residing in the Surrey Hills, Emma takes great pride in being a part of the Surrey Wildlife Trust’s Outdoor Woodland Learning team at Nower Wood, inspiring and enthusing naturalists of the future.
