We welcome all beginners and hope that we can inspire you to become fascinated bird-watchers. Birds teach us what habitats lie just beyond the horizon, to know what is happening in the forest and whether an owl is about or the sap is running.
Do you like birds? Do you want to become a better birder?
If you find the bird-watching world a bit intimidating to get into, then our Intro to Birding video is a great place to start. Our very own bird expert, Xavier Tuson, takes you through how to choose binoculars, where and when to look for birds, and some key features to look out for.
We also have a slideshow featuring the 25 most common birds of The Land Between. Learning to identify the common birds first is a great way to get started in your birding journey:
