Due to popular demand we are offering another Birdwatching for Beginners Course with experienced local ornithologist Scott Paterson, on Sunday 9th October from 10:30am-4:30pm.

This one-day course aims to provide an informal and enjoyable introduction to birds and birdwatching. Aimed primarily at beginners, by the end of the day participants will be able to use binoculars, confidently identify common birds and most of all have enjoyed themselves!

The course will be led by Scott Paterson, a local birdwatcher and the county bird recorder for Perth and Kinross who has previously worked as a nature reserve warden and site manager for twelve years. Scott now operates his own wildlife surveying and guiding business.

The day will be divided into two parts with as much as possible taking place outside. There will be brief and informal indoor sessions, followed by longer practical outdoor sessions where we put our knowledge into practice.

Here’s some of the feedback we received from the courses that ran earlier in the year:

“Scott was very knowledgeable and the course was very good for those starting out in the birdwatching field”

“Scott has a charming, friendly manner, and is an excellent communicator, full of enthusiasm”

“Scott covered all the aspects I was looking for, in particular his knowledge of birding is excellent and very informative”

Booking is essential and places limited so call the visitor centre ASAP to secure a place.
