Wing your way to a break with the birds

Would you know a curlew from a corncrake? Have you ever wondered why the lark ascends or the robin bobs?

For novice birdwatchers who want to find out more about birds and why they do what they do, a four-day course in the Peak District will offer all the background needed to start a lifelong hobby.

The "Getting to Know Birds" short break holiday, from November 18 to 22 at Losehill Hall, near Castleton, will be led by ornithologist Keith Offord.

Keith, who has 35 years' experience of birdwatching, will explain the way birds are 'built', he will explore bird courtship and feeding, and lead practical field visits in the Peak District National Park.

The course costs £295, including all meals, tuition, and accommodation in en-suite rooms at the award winning Losehill Hall, the National Park's centre for environmental education.
