Everyone is welcome at our events, whether or not they are RSPB members, though costs may vary between members and non-members. If you would like to help at an event, we would love to hear from you - either use the contact details for the event, or go to the 'Contact Us' page.

Our indoor meetings are well-attended and popular - don't worry if you are not an expert, not many of us are, so you will be in good company! The same goes for the Field Trips - and they are an excellent way of learning more about the birds we see. If you would like a Programme that you can print, go to the 'News' page, where you will find an item entitled 'Programme on Website', from which a Programme can be downloaded.

We're looking forward to seeing you!
