Stronger together - partnership work is key
BTO Scotland and The Scottish Ornithologists’ Club (SOC)
One of BTO Scotland’s key partners is the SOC. The SOC was established by a group of Scottish ornithologists who met together in the rooms of the Royal Scottish Geographical Society in Edinburgh on 24th March 1936. The Club now has 2500 members and plays a key role in helping the BTO to instigate and deliver Scotland-wide bird surveys. The BTO and SOC hold annual joint one day conferences each spring to promote survey work and amateur birdwatching.
