Project #2


In this workshop we discover local and migratory birds, record their calls, flight patterns, and nesting practices to better understand their place in the environment.

Nature Watch Participants

As part of ‘NatureWatch: Exploring the Benefits of Nature using Technology’, the surveying and identification of migrant birds in the spring is perhaps the most exciting time of the year.

Regardless of your geographic location, as spring arrives you will begin to see birds moving. Whether these are resident birds (such as robins, blue tits, sparrows, blackbirds) increasing their movements in preparation for nesting season, or migrants (such as swallows, cuckoos, swifts) arriving on our shores after wintering away, chances are you will notice a change in the species you’re observing.

Our main aims for our participants were to improve their bird identification skills and to monitor the migration of bird species in their area.
