Whether looking for guidance on volunteering, letting us know what you think, or simply finding a group to go birding with, find a way to start the conversation.
It's starting to get exciting! Birds are on the move again; for some species, the summer is over, breeding has finished and it's time to head back towards their wintering grounds. For this year's young it will be their first migration and, depending on the species involved, they can either undertake this amazing feat of navigation led by the adults of the same species or, for many, entirely on their own. Birds like Swift and Cuckoo that breed in Britain and Ireland have all but gone, with only a few stragglers or young birds still to depart.
