Ornithology

Join us to enjoy bird watching. Our principal aim is to bring together people with an interest in bird life for mutual support and recreation. Our 3 or 4 walks a year are usually in small groups when the beginner and the expert can compare notes and help each other.

We hope to encourage taking notes and keeping records. Until 2012 we prepared our own Bulletins, see the Archive, but now encourage members to make use of the national recording forums such as BirdTrack.

For a society with a long history, one of the principle aims of our earlier members was to form a collection of the flora and fauna of Perthshire. We are no longer going to seek and collect those those specimens for museum displays but collect observe, conserve and enjoy our birdlife, and maybe collect some images. It all supports our winter evenings, which inform and entertain with avian news, and a chat over tea.

New members are welcome to join us at any time, on a summer outing or 7.30pm Wednesday evening in Perth Museum.
