On Saturday 15 November the Trust’s ecologist Stuart Collins will be holding a free ‘Birding for Beginners’ course teaching people how to identify different species of bird.

The course is aimed at showing birdwatchers what to look out for through the changing seasons. On Sunday the Trust’s ‘Explorers’ education team will be teaching families how to make simple feeders helping birds through the winter months.

The team will also be leading some fun bird-spotting activities and helping families to collect leaves which they can use to create special Autumn crowns. The ‘Explorers’ programme is aimed at teaching kids all about the history and wildlife of their local canals as well as how to enjoy them safely.

The event is run by volunteers and is part of a monthly programme of things to do at Fradley Junction. More information The Birding for Beginners course takes place from 9:00 on Saturday 15 November.
