How many times have you heard a twitter in the trees and looked up to see a colourful (or not so colourful) little bird singing on a branch? Well, truth be told, most of the time I don't see it, I just hear it. But either way, I can rarely tell what kind of bird it is. Apart from your common magpie or pigeon, I'm pretty useless when it comes to naming birds.

If you are the same as me, but are interested in learning more about the birds in your area, then you can always attend an 'in the field' bird identification workshop at the Wildfowl and Wetlands trust.

The course will be taught by the photographer, Andy Bunting. As well as participating in a bird watching session, you will develop your skills for bird identification by learning the tools of the trade. Find out what sounds each species make, see the subtle differences in markings, and find out which are the best tools to use - i.e. binoculars - for taking on the hobby of bird watching.

A one-day course costs £20 and can be booked by phoning 01704 891220. The course starts at 8.30am and ends at 3pm. The courses for 2013 are on the following dates:
