Join us to enjoy birdwatching. Our principal aim is to bring together people with an interest in birds and other wildlife for mutual enjoyment 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 produced Bulletins which are available for download on the PSNS Publications page, but now encourage members to make use of national recording forums such as BirdTrack.

For a society with a long history, one of the principal aims of our earlier members was to form a collection of the flora and fauna of Perthshire. We are no longer collect specimens for museum displays but 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.
