Join us to learn the basics of bird identification at Linlithgow Loch (west Lothian) where will be looking at wildfowl which winter at Linlithgow Loch, plus anything else that happens to be around. The walk will last around two –three hours and will be lead by Scott Paterson, our guided walks organiser. Scott is county bird recorder for the Perth & Kinross region and is an accomplished ornithologist with many years of experience as a professional bird ID skills trainer.

The walk will be relaxed and informal with discussion and questions encouraged and will aim to provide and enjoyable introduction to birds, bird identification and birdwatching.  Numbers are limited to ten so groups won’t be too large or intimidating.
