Useful, thanks Rachel
Thanks for this link. Will probably sign up. On line courses are helpful when getting out and about is limited, and it seems to me that organisations can achieve very good reach and engagement this way. I ‘attended’ two multi session BTO courses (fee was very fair) which were excellent in organisation, materials and homework. And I’ve signed up for some Buglife ones coming up soon, too, introductory level spiders and pollinators. Onward and upwards!
You are welcome. I’ve already signed up for this one. Hopefully a good intro/refresher. I’ll be posting a few more of these up on the forum, as and when they come up on my radar. Good for our new Users/New iSpotters or anyone wanting to refresh or learn something new. Yes, I’ve seen the Buglife ones too! I’m signed up on a couple of the pollinator ones, so may see you on there (albeit virtually).
