Cambridgeshire Bird Club

Welcome to the club

The Cambridgeshire Bird Club promotes the study, recording and conservation of birds in Cambridgeshire and encourages a wider interest in natural history and the protection of county wildlife habitats.

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 emailed and online bulletins. And have a look at our Facebook page.

You can see What's About? and we urge you to report interesting, sensitive or confidential sightings to the County Recorder.

We hope you enjoy your visit and come back soon.

Picture of the month: January

Cranes, Undisclosed site. 20 January 2019

Vince Lea has made this month's selection:

"There were a couple of images showing flights of the amazing flock of Cranes which has built up in the Cambridgeshire Fens over the last few years, and although it is not as clear as David Benton's shot of 47 over his house (wow!) the evocative evening light makes Simon Stirrup's image my photo of the month. I was also really impressed with Gary Thornton's garden Nuthatch, the portrait of a fine Long-eared Owl by Dave Spencer and Neil Bramwell's Black Redstart might have made the cut if it had been fully tailed.
