The Casual Birder Podcast

Suzy shares the joy of watching wild birds, from her garden visitors in southern England to birds seen internationally.

Learn how to identify species, notice their behaviours, and recognize songs and calls.

Join Suzy for recorded bird outings, interviews with experts and enthusiasts, and stories from birders around the world.

Suzy says: “Birding is a great pastime. It can be done with others or alone. You don't need expensive equipment, your eyes or ears are enough. And best of all, the Casual Birder can do as much or as little birding as suits them. It's perfect for fitting into our busy schedules.”

This week, I met with Martin Austwick, host of the Song by Song Podcast, for a bird walk in London’s Regent’s Park.

Martin describes himself as a casual birder, and we had a lovely stroll around the park, just noticing the birds that were around.

Along the way I heard about some of the birds that Martin has seen on his travels around the world.
