Programme of outings

Forthcoming Outings

How to join car outings


Please send photos of outings (birds and people!) to for adding to the website

Due to current UK government health advice regarding Coronavirus, the need to avoid unnecessary travel and the requirement not to gather in groups, the SDBWS Field Outings Programme has now been suspended at least for the next three months and until further notice.

We will resume activities as soon as it is safe to do so and will then circulate details accordingly.

Request for photographs

I am hoping to include photographs of the sites we visit whenever field outings are announced in the Newletter. To achieve this, I want to set up a library of site photographs. May I ask leaders to take, or have a photograph taken, of the sites you visit, so that these can be added to the library? I am also looking for photographs of species seen, so that these can be used in future publications. These, also, would be welcome. I will, of course, acknowledge copyright when using photographs.
