Just a few days to go until Cape Bird Club Beginners’ Course!
Even if you are not an absolute beginner birder, but feel you have missed out on some of the basics along the way, then this course could be for you. People have remarked to me that they have attended Heather’s courses several times and have learnt new things and helpful tips each time.
