About us

The group's aim is to promote and support the RSPB's worldwide objectives and to play an active part in fundraising and publicity.



We meet on the second Monday of each month from September to April. We have monthly speakers on a variety of natural history subjects, but the main emphasis is birds. Our outdoor field trips include coach and car trips, and new members are always welcome.
