They will help you tell the difference between all those special birds we call "LBBs" - little brown birds, give you time to practise identifying real birds, and explain what types of plants and conditions are needed to attract more birds to your garden. The workshop has received fabulous feedback and this is the first time they have presented for the City of Cockburn. Join them for an inspiring and informative morning - and it's free!
