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 do research, we have indoor and outdoor meetings, and we keep you informed with our regular print and online Bulletins.
Cambirds is an unmoderated discussion group on Cambridgeshire birds and birding which is independent of the Cambridgeshire Bird Club. You do not need to be a member of the Club to participate in this forum, but you will need a Google account.
We hope you enjoy your visit and come back soon.

Thirty Years of Bird Photography by Tim Loseby
Tim Loseby has been birdwatching for over 50 years. The first 'exotic' place he went to was Minsmere in 1964! He has been a photographer for 30 years, and became a familiar face on the birding scene in the 1980s as a photographer of rarities. He is a founder member of the Oriental Bird Club and has travelled extensively in Indian Subcontinent and Central Asia and Middle East. He is Director of Fair Isle Bird Observatory a place he first visited in 1970. He comes from Yorkshire originally but, following 35 years in Kent, now lives in north Norfolk.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
