We will split into teams, each of which will set out to find as many different species of birds as they can in about 90 minutes. As well as being great fun, it's a good way for young naturalists to learn about how different birds choose live in different habitats, and how to find those really tricky birds that are difficult to spot. They will also learn how useful it is to use our ears as well as our eyes to find birds.
This is always a fun competition - no need to be a bird expert, the idea is to learn as we go along. Everyone is welcome - no need to be an RSPB member. The winning team will be awarded the Airedale Otters Trophy, which is made of very expensive plastic!
As ever, please come dressed for whatever the weather brings. Although the paths in St Ives are generally good, they can often be muddy
