Have you always wanted to know more about those birds that wake you up at 5am during the summer?

Manx BirdLife and the Manx Ornithological Society (MOS) are organizing a bird identification course for beginners where you will be given the basics on how to best observe birds, recommended equipment and books, as well as hints & tips on how to recognize main groups of birds.
