Winter Garden Birds - Class of 2020/21

We've loved running our Winter Garden Birds course, with 4 sessions before Christmas and 4 sessions in early 2021.


It really helped pass the long winter nights!


A highlight was our live video streams of our bird feeders for the Big Garden Birdwatch (30th & 31st January).

A Butterfly Year - March 21

To get everyone ready for Spring and Summer, we ran a course with a focus on butterflies, taking participants month by month through the year and the butterflies on the wing to look out for. We still weren't able to offer field trips as part of the course due to covid, but we did manage to offer an end of course quiz!

An Introduction to Moths - May 21


We ran an introductory course to moths and moth trapping over 4 sessions with 2 catch up sessions so we could share the species we were seeing as the spring progressed. It was fantastic that 4 of our course participants purchased moth traps as a result and have started to log the many diverse and beautiful species that they have visit their own gardens.
