Welcome to the website of the Nottinghamshire Birdwatchers.

The Nottinghamshire Birdwatchers is a registered charity with membership open to all.

The society aims to promote an interest in birds in Nottinghamshire. We are a friendly group for anybody interested in wild birds, living in, or visiting, Nottinghamshire, irrespective of their level of knowledge, experience or skill.

The society is administered by Nottinghamshire birdwatchers for Nottinghamshire birdwatchers.

The society organises local guided walks and trips to birdwatching areas further afield. Communication is by this website, Twitter and by the newsletter that is published on a monthly basis. Membership is open to everyone from experts to beginners.

We are also especially keen to attract younger members to the society, and offer 21yrs and under members the opportunity of funding towards training or attending an event to help improve skills.
