About the event

Sun 12 May & Sat 18 May

WWT London Wetland Centre is a marvellous location for bird watching and, at this time of year, for "bird listening" too! As songbirds declare their territories and attempt to attract a mate they're often hidden away in the dense foliage of trees or reed beds. So getting to know them by the sounds they make is very handy whatever your level of interest in birds and wildlife.

In this 1½ hour session you'll learn how to identify birds through song, guided by one of our experts through useful tips, notes and fieldwork. We can't predict exactly which birds will be around on the day, but you're likely to hear a number of garden bird species such as blackbirds and robins, as well as wetland specialities like Cetti's warbler and lapwing. By the end of the session you should be able to identify ten key species.
