About Us

Since its formation in 1954 the Surbiton and District Bird Watching Society has grown to become one of the foremost ornithological societies in the South East of England, located about 25 miles to the South West of London. The Society has grown in strength and reputation, providing its membership with a consistently wide range of activities. A brief history of the society can be found here.

Currently, the Society has around 130 members and partakes in many activities including field outings and residential weekends. There are also several groups active in supporting the British Trust for Ornithology and RSPB in their various censuses as well as having partaken for 3 years in the Parakeet Project

The society meets on the 3rd Tuesday of each month at Surbiton Library, commencing at 8pm, except for August (no meeting). If you would like to join, or are simply visiting the area either contact the membership secretary, Gary Caine (gary.caine@royalmail.com ) or simply come along.

Subscription rate is £15 per year. Junior U16 is £5 per year. Family membership (two adults and all children U16) is £30 per year.
