"The more you know, the more rewarding the experience will be. When I started, I just liked spotting some wildlife. Now I want to know when they hang out, what they eat, how long they live, what noises they make. You can also learn about which birds are migrating though where you live, which means at different times of year, there are different things to look out for. I recently spent an evening watching cranes on their migration from the colder Nordic region to the warmer climates of southern Spain and Morocco. You can also extend your knowledge to what berries, fungi and plants are edible and what their seasons are. One day you may be able to forage a meal. With so much time on our hands, it's nice to have some homework to do!"
