Covid Update -

The committee are monitoring the Covid situation and taking appropriate steps which may mean some indoor events will require some adjustment to ensure the safety of our members, presenters and staff.

Our Club 

Welcome to the Peterborough Bird Club. We are a friendly group and warmly welcome new members. Whether you are an expert or beginner, the club aims to bring people together that have a shared interest in nature, particularly birds.

The club runs local walks in through out the year and indoor presentations through the autumn and winter.

 

Presentations are given by club members, professional photographers and representatives of national nature organisations covering local, national and international birds as well as other nature based subjects such as reptiles, bees, conservation etc….  

Walks are usually local but we often go further afield. During these the leaders and others, naturally pass on their knowledge and experience as well as highlighting local sites.

Visitors are welcome to join us on a walk or attend our presentations. You could even join the club and help us carry on into the future.

Come and join us
