During the CV pandemic spending less time outside means we may be keen to explore new ways to connect with nautre, from inside our homes. 


This 8 page resource offers guidance, encouragement & advice to help you explore ways of connecting with nature at home, by watching birds. No prior experience or knowledge is necessary to gain enjoyment from this activity - merely the time & willingness to sit & observe. This guide has been written with the beginner in mind, & also contains creative suggestions for families who would like to try birdwatching with children. Suggestions for anyone interested in incorporating a little mindfulness have also been included.


The guide also features a recording sheet, which may be useful for jotting notes & recording sightings. Jo shares her love of birdwatching for pleasure here, with the emphasis being on fostering your curiosity & experiencing the mental health benefits associated with connecting with nature.


The guide is broken into the short sections, to help you explore approaches to watching birds & also help guide your watching. Sections such as 


  • Senses & Sensations
  • Observing the Environment
  • Watching birds in the sky
  • Colour & Plumage
  • Location & habit
