We record the county's birds in our Annual Report, so we need your Records. We have a stunning Gallery, so we need your photos. We discuss things on Cambirds, we do Research, we have indoor Meetings, we have a Partnership with an African bird-club and we inform you with our regular Bulletins and lots more.
You can see 'What's About?' and we urge you to report promptly interesting sightings to the County Recorder
We hope you enjoy your visit and come back soon.
Next indoor meetings:
Friday 10th May, Cottenham Village College

A message from the Wildlife Trust: Voluntary bird surveyor (Ecology Groups)
Join your local Ecology Group and help monitor local reserves using your skills to identify birds by their songs. Monitoring the structure of our nature reserves is of great importance to the Trust and just one way of approaching this is to focus on the wildlife using that structure. We are looking for new volunteers to join our existing teams, the Ecology Groups, to help carry out breeding bird transects annually, gathering data to sample the birds breeding in woodland and scrub habitats. Reserves currently in need of monitoring include Grafham Water, Waresley and Gransden Wood and other sites in northern Cambridgeshire as well.
Essential skills required include the ability to identify birds by their songs and calls. If you would be interested in joining us or would like further details about the Ecology Groups please contact me, Henry Stanier, Ecology Groups Officer at The Manor House, Broad Street, Great Cambourne, Cambridge CB23 6DH / email email@example.com.
