Re-connect with nature: Birdsong workshop

Imagine if you could see birdsong. Technology meets the natural world in a day dedicated to exploring the science behind some wild sounds.

  • Booking essential

Richard Baines, Director and Ecologist at Yorkshire Coast Nature delves deeper into the science of birdsong in a day long workshop aimed at beginners and more experienced birders alike. A walk via the woodlands and cliffs of Ravenscar to record bird calls and song will be followed by an indoor learning session. Sound files will be transformed into spectrograms, a visual representation of a sound frequency over time. A fascinating view into another world and an aid to learning new birdsong.
