Tutor: Mike Russell
These special half day bird safaris are aimed at giving beginners an introduction to the bird life of Sussex in a variety of habitats.
In the Spring the South Downs come alive as birds claim their territories and look for a mate. The downs in the Kithurst Hill area are famous for the abundance of farmland birds many of which are in decline in other parts of the county.
We will look for Corn Bunting, Grey Partridge as well as commoner species such as Skylark, Yellowhammer and Linnet as well as pipits, finches and buntings. Birds of prey are a feature of this area too and we’ll scan the skies for Red Kite.
No previous knowledge needed, just enthusiasm. These courses are popular. If they are fully booked please request to be placed on the waiting list as we may run more (email [email protected])
Meet in the car park adjacent to the South Downs Way off the B2139 Storrington Amberley Road. Nearest postcode RH20 4HN.
