Bird Songs and Calls - Higham Hall

Higham Hall
Blackcaps are not the most visible birds but they are definitely the most audible. Knowing the songs of birds like these is an invaluable skill.
The vocalisations of birds are invaluable aids to help us in their identification but the process of learning them all may seem daunting and never-ending. Fortunately most species have a repertoire which is unique, enabling confident identification, even in the absence of a view. Such calls and songs can also draw our attention to the existence of a bird which may otherwise go un-noticed. This short course will provide the necessary starting point for beginners as well as enabling others, with more experience, to add to their knowledge. Three full days will be spent in the glorious surroundings and varied habitats of the North Lakes at the time of year when birds are at their most vocal.

Regrettably, due to the coronavirus outbreak this event will not proceed this year. However, every effort will be made to run this event again as soon as possible and Higham Hall will be in contact accordingly.

Higham Hall is one of only a handful of independent residential colleges in the north of England providing a range of open learning experiences for adults.

Once people discover Higham they tend to return again and again, often for many years, such is the joy of simply spending intelligent time with like-minded people in such charismatic surroundings.

Higham’s main activity is now as an independent Educational Trust attracting around 3,000 adults each year on over  250 courses of lengths from half a day to up to a week. People come from Cumbria, the North of England, Scotland and further afield. No qualifications needed, just a desire to enjoy learning, and the warmest Cumbrian hospitality.
