Enhance Your Knowledge
Britain hosts a fascinating variety of wildlife from insects to birds, amphibians to mammals and it takes a lot of experience to be able to identify it all. The Buteo team has a vast range of experience and knowledge to help you learn the basic methods of identification and to understand the differences between the various creatures.
Sessions will concentrate on different aspects of wildlife from understanding habitats and the wildlife which uses them to identifying birds by song or will focus on insects such as dragonflies and butterflies. Each morning will begin with a short "classroom session", although this may not always be indoors, and will then be followed by exploring a certain habitat and investigating its wildlife.
It should be remembered that wildlife is affected by the weather and under certain conditions some things may be difficult to find. We will, however, endeavour to discover as much wildlife of as great a variety as possible during each session and will show you how best to go about finding wildlife in any weather conditions.
Wildlife for Beginners
Wildlife for Beginners sessions are aimed at beginners of all ages and can be tailored to meet individual requirements. Any specialist equipment that is required will be supplied but a pair of binoculars and a simple magnifying lens would be useful, if you have them. Suitable clothing and footwear should be worn as we will be in the field for part of each session whatever the weather.
An "Apprenticeship" package comprising of 12 sessions booked at the same time is available at a discounted price.
