Overview

Short course in ecological survey techniques

This tutor-led course offers detailed training in passive and non-passive bird surveying techniques, including group-based counts, and transect and aerial surveys, and mist-netting, cannon-netting and tagging as well as bird survey design and reporting results. The course will provide the expertise and essential know-how needed by the skilled practitioner in bird conservation and ecology.

As a part-time course taught online, Field Techniques for Surveying Birds is ideal for professional ecological consultants, environmental managers and rangers, research and postgraduate students, and volunteers that are seeking flexible study combined with expert training. The course can be taken from anywhere in the world and is international in its use of case studies and examples. Past students on the Ecological Survey Techniques programme have joined us from the UK, the USA, Australia, Africa and Europe.

Field Techniques for Surveying Birds aims to create a rich workshop experience by encouraging direct student and tutor interaction and discussion in an online setting.

This course can be taken with or without Masters-level credit; credit enables students to demonstrate their academic achievement and can count towards further postgraduate study. Students taking the course for credit submit an assessment of up to 2000 words or equivalent, students taking the course without credit will receive a Certificate of Attendance upon successful completion of the course.

The Ecological Survey Techniques Programme can help professionals to apply for Chartered Status (such as Chartered Environmentalist and Chartered Ecologist), and to meet relevant professional competency thresholds. Further information can be found in our Chartered status and essential skills guide.
