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 weather an owl is about or the sap is running, and birds lighten our spirits and delight us with song!
Do you like birds? Do you want to become a better birder?
If you are interested in birds, but find bird-watching 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.
You can further test your bird identification skills with these self-paced slides with photos taken in the Land Between by our famous photographer, Tracey McCann. Tracey also takes most of the beautiful photos you see on our Facebook page.
