Following the successful reception of our pilot series of webinars, we are going to make them a regular feature.

We are aiming for around two per month, probably excluding Xmas and January. We are going to expand the theme beyond purely Bird Identification to also include some more general birding topics, with the dual aim of educating and entertaining.

We will also try to provide a mix of information aimed sometimes at our beginner / intermediate members and sometimes more specialised / advanced. Something for everyone!

Timings will continue to normally be Wednesdays from 19:00 – 20:00.

We will continue to use the Zoom webinar platform – a help sheet is referenced below. We will make them as interactive as possible so that members can ask questions and contribute to the discussion.

We will record each webinar and make them available for download – see below.

We need to know the attendee numbers in order to correctly size the webinar. So if you would like to attend, please register in advance by clicking on the relevant registration hyperlinks in the programme schedule below.

Once registered, you will receive another email with the hyperlink for you to use on the day to join the Webinar.
When you click on this hyperlink it will open up a web browser on your PC to enable you to join the Webinar.

Please note that we have produced a step-by-step pictorial technical guide.

More information can also be found here on the Zoom website.

09/12/2020Ian FalkenbergBirds of Prey in FlightWhen we see birds of prey it is often when they are in flight. Typically a fleeting glimpse as they dash above our heads. Not that wonderful perched stance that we see in the guidebooks, where we can clearly see every feature. So how can we identify them when they're in the air? Ian Falkenberg is going to help us. Ian is a highly experienced ornithologist who has had a particular focus on Falcons and other Birds of Prey. Ian is the SA State Representative on the Birdlife Australia Raptor Group.Click here
