Lincolnshire Bird Club
The Lincolnshire Bird Club
The club was inaugurated in September 1979 with the following aims:
- to encourage and further an interest in the bird life of the historic county of Lincolnshire
- to collect and publish information on bird movements and populations
- to encourage conservation of the wildlife of the county
- to provide sound information on which conservation policies can be based.
Joining the Lincolnshire Bird Club is a great way to make new birdwatching friends and contacts in Lincolnshire! If you are a "beginner", but keen to become actively involved in birding, you will find that learning about your county's wild birds - how, when and where to see them - is both easier and more enjoyable when undertaken in the company of our local enthusiasts. If you're already an active birdwatcher you can add another dimension to your birding by becoming involved in our varied local activities.
WHO are we?
All sorts of people are members, linked by their interest in birds and birdwatching in our county. Our membership covers a wide range of birding experience from the newest "beginner" to "expert". Everyone is welcome.
WHAT do we do?
Apart from providing a social forum for local birdwatchers we also:
- organise our own surveys of bird species in Lincolnshire
- take part in national bird surveys and censuses, organised by national conservation bodies including the BTO
- hold an annual slide show / lecture meeting on AGM evening
- provide a newsletter, Lincolnshire Bird News, at intervals through each year
- publish an annual Lincolnshire Bird Report , featuring the systematic list of birds, the county ringing report, reports on long and short-term surveys, Lincolnshire site annual reviews, plus other reports on our county's birds
- provide access to the Lincolnshire Bird Club forum - http://www.lincsbirdclub.co.uk/forum
- provide access to the Lincolnshire Wildlife Photo Album - http://www.lincsbirds.co.uk/album/
- Organise birding field trip, including ‘pelagic’ boat trip into the Wash
- Maintain the LBC hide at Cut End
