Join our North England Regional Group for another Birds for Foresters event this time in the North West.
With an ever increasing need and focus on the protection and conservation of species through woodland management and creation, this training day will give foresters a valuable opportunity to gain a better understanding of woodland bird and wader identification and their habitat requirements. Members will leave with a clearer understanding about identifying birds by sight and sound, which birds are found in which habitats, and how those habitats could be improved for birds and other wildlife.
09:30 Morning – Bird fauna associated with different woodland types and ways to enhance it
12:00 Lunch and Q&A
13:30 Afternoon – Bird fauna associated with open habitats and ways to enhance it
16:00 Final discussion and close
