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.

The Idle Washlands have been attracting some very good birds this year, including a Great White Egret on Newington Flash on the 1st and 2nd September. This site was reported as been in Nott's, but in fact it’s just over the border in South Yorkshire. The confusion comes from Notts and local birders using the same name for two different areas, one in Notts and the other in S Yorks.
A document explaining Nott's/York's site boundaries can be viewed HERE and will hopefully clarify site names and avoid confusion.
