Welcome to the website of the Nottinghamshire Birdwatchers.
The Nottinghamshire Birdwatchers is a registered charity with membership open to all.
The society aims to promote an interest in birds in Nottinghamshire. We are a friendly group for anybody interested in wild birds, living in, or visiting, Nottinghamshire, irrespective of their level of knowledge, experience or skill.
The society is administered by Nottinghamshire birdwatchers for Nottinghamshire birdwatchers.
The society organises local guided walks and trips to birdwatching areas further afield. Communication is by this website, Twitter and by the newsletter that is published on a monthly basis. Membership is open to everyone from experts to beginners. We are also especially keen to attract younger members to the society.

Sponsored Birdwatch/Birdrace May 2015
Nottinghamshire Wildlife Trust is resurrecting its Sponsored Birdwatch to raise funds for its Sherwood Forest Restoration Fund and the management of its 67 nature reserves across the county.
The Kingfisher’ Trophy, presented to the team which records the most species during the event, is currently being looked after by Lound Bird Club, the last winners back in 2003, but the Wildlife Trust is now calling on teams to come forward from across Nottinghamshire to try and rest it from their grip.
