An Introduction to Waders - Chichester (23/10/2020) Friday, 23rd October 2020 10:00 AM - 4:00 PM


Tutor:  Mike Russell

During the autumn the wetlands of the south coast become an important refuelling hub for flocks of waders. Many of these birds are passing through on their way further south while others are escaping the frozen north. Although the mudflats are filled with thousands of birds how many could you identify?

Mike Russell will guide you through the identification of these waders. So if you’re new to birdwatching and are perplexed by plovers, need help separating your shanks or untangling your Knots this is the course for you. 

The day will start with an illustrated indoor session looking at waders in autumn and winter plumages. We will then head out to explore Pagham Harbour where we will look across mudflats and learn how to identify the many waders feeding here.

This course is ideal for beginners to birdwatching. No previous knowledge or skills required, just enthusiasm!

Meet at Pagham Harbour Visitor Centre, Pagham, Chichester, PO20 7NE.
