City of Edinburgh Council Adult Education programme

I lead beginners' birdwatching walks for Edinburgh Council Adult Education Programme. The dates for the next two terms are:

Mon: 10:00-12:00 - 5 wks from 23rd Feb, meet at Water of Leith Visitor Centre for first walk
Tue: 6:30-8:30 - 5 wks from 28th April, meet at Broughton Community High School for 1st walk
These walks tend to sell out, so it's best to book in advance on the council website (the new programme will be up from the 2nd week of December).

Starting on Tuesday 27 January I'll be leading another series of monthly nature walks for Wester Hailes Education Centre (Community Education). The first walk will be round Colinton and Craiglockart Dells, hoping to see kingfishers, dippers and maybe even a roe deer or two. Other walks will follow on 24 February and 24 May.

I'm leading an eight week Wednesday evening (6.30 - 8.30) creative writing class starting 28 January at Leith Academy.
