Events for young people in Scotland

The SOC and BTO Scotland are excited to launch a new series of free, monthly events for people under 30.

Delivered on Zoom, attendees will enjoy a diverse programme of interactive online workshops and talks from some of Scotland’s top ornithologists, naturalists and creatives.

| Interactive workshop |

Are you perplexed by petrels, stumped by shearwaters, or discombobulated by divers? You’re not alone – seabirds can be difficult to identify. During this interactive workshop with the SOC’s Birding & Science Officer Mark Lewis, you’ll learn why this is, and develop a methodical approach to identifying seabirds, using examples of your own identification challenges. For those keen to continue to develop their seabird knowledge, we’ll also take a look at opportunities for getting involved in current UK seabird monitoring projects.
