Do you find trying to learn via birdsong apps just doesn’t provide you with the context and corroboration that you need?

Then this short, interactive online course might just be for you!

This course focuses on the songs of ten common woodland birds you might find in the UK. It takes you on a step-by-step learning journey, which you can follow at your own pace and repeat at your leisure. Begin with an introduction to identifying these birds using visual characteristics. Then listen to audio of each bird and read hints and tips to help you learn along the way.

Aimed at keen amateurs or early-career ecologists, these courses supplement beginners’ field-trips, providing an opportunity to practice in the comfort of their own home.
