Birds are found in all habitat types from buildings to woodland and farmland to coast. Anyone conducting ecological surveys or undertaking conservation work will therefore encounter birds on their sites.

Course Description:

This introductory level course is aimed at people with reasonable bird identification skills who want to be able to conduct specific bird surveys as part of their consultancy or conservation work. This course provides information about the different survey types that can be used, the methodology involved and how to interpret and present the results.

The course will cover:

  • Why survey
  • Understanding biases
  • Appropriate Survey
  • Techniques
  • Recording and Results

The course will be a mix of classroom and field based, with a walk around Carymoor to practice some of the survey techniques.



The course will be held at The Carymoor Environmental Centre, Near Castle Cary, Somerset. Directions and a list of local accommodation will be provided when you book.
