Go on your very own bird safari!
18 November 2015 / Outdoors
‘Keep Exploring’ starts in the kitchen (with Vogel’s toast of course), but can take you anywhere – especially the great outdoors. And what better exponent of the wide-open skies than our native bird population?
You don’t need to be a Twitcher (or ‘bird nerd’) to take an interest in our feathered friends. Town or country, there’s a bird or two just waiting to be spotted near you right now!
Start with the wonderful Twigle Bird Spotting App. It’s dead easy to use and gets you knowing your sparrow from your sparrow hawk in no time.
The RSPB is ready and waiting to help feed your interest. Their site is stuffed (appropriate?) with brilliant tips and tricks, like their wildtime calendar which tells you where in the UK birds and events are appearing.
Birdwatch is another seriously enthusiastic site and their itineraries give you great ideas for getting out there with your binocs in your local area.
But if that all sounds a bit strenuous, how about this? What can you see from your kitchen window? Stick a couple of slices of Vogel’s Superseeded Bloomer in the toaster, click on the kettle and settle down to a bit of home-grown bird safari from the comfort of your favourite kitchen chair! With the RSPB bird identifier on a screen in easy reach you’ll be ‘Exploring’ the birdseye view of your habitat in no time.
