Beginner’s Guide to the Birds of the Thanet Coast

16 Dec 2016

Meet at the Pier Yard Car Park in front of Ramsgate Maritime Museum, Harbour Parade

Join expert birder, Tony Swandale, on Ramsgate seafront for a beginners guide to exploring the birdlife along the Thanet Coast.

This walk is specifically aimed at beginners to birdwatching, but open to all.  Over the two hours we will look at the different bird species that can be found along our coastline and how to identify them.  There will be advice for beginners to birdwatching on how to get the best out of birdwatching along the coast, as well as advice on optical equipment and field guides.

Public car parking and toilet facilities are available at Ramsgate Harbour.  The walking route along the harbour wall and coast path is level with a hard surface.  The event will involve a small amount of walking at a slow pace with frequent stops to observe the birdlife.

Please bring along binoculars if you have them.  Several pairs of binoculars will be available to borrow for the walk on a first come, first served basis.  Please come prepared for winter weather: wear warm and waterproof clothing.  Do check the weather forecast in advance of the event and be prepared for the weather to change. 

This event is not suitable for children under the age of 12.  Dogs are not allowed.
