Wild Ouseburn Bird Count – Training Workshop

March 9 @ 10:00 am 11:30 am

Join us to help survey the birds of Wild Ouseburn with the Merlin Bird ID App!

The Wild Ouseburn project aims to survey as much of the wildlife in the area as possible, documenting wildlife records that can help conserve and restore the species in the valley, by informing future management and identifying opportunities for rewilding.

By surveying the birds with set methods we can compare records year after year, creating robust data to monitor the Lower Ouseburn Valley’s birds into the future.

The Wild Ouseburn Bird Count will use a survey technique called ‘Point Counts’, a pre-defined spot where you record the birds over 10 minutes. For this survey we’ll be using the Merlin Bird ID App, which can recognise and identify the birds you hear!

This training workshop will cover all the survey techniques for the Wild Ouseburn Bird Count, including setting up the Merlin Bird ID App.

No prior experience needed, just a phone capable of downloading the Merlin Bird ID App (we’re currently looking at the possibility of having some tablets for survey use).

No booking required, just meet at Ouseburn Farm for 10am.
