Field Meetings

Field meetings are open to members and non-members alike.

Field Meetings 2021

You do not have to be a bird club member to come along although members get priority with non-members initially being placed on the reserve list.

Here is some feedback from a recent trip “we learnt such a lot but also everyone was so friendly & we had some lovely chats, sharing suggestions of places to visit, stories of bird related holidays & even book recommendations.  We would love to join up to the Club
