Devon Birds is our county bird society with a long and distinguished history dating back to 1928.

Since its inception, Society members have been organising and promoting the study and conservation of birds through fieldwork, recording, reserves management and publishing.

Membership is by subscription and entitles you to:

  • Receive (optionally) by post all the Society’s high quality publications (UK Postal addresses only).
  • Access our Document Archive to view past publications and current Society documents.
  • Meet other like-minded people.
  • Attend illustrated lectures given by leading ornithologists.
  • Take part in field meetings led by experienced birdwatchers at locations throughout the county and beyond.
  • Participate in surveys gathering valuable bird records for the Society and national organisations.
  • Visit the Society’s reserves and hides.
  • Attend organised events and activities.
  • A vote in any AGM or Extraordinary AGM.

You will also be a member of one of the foremost County Bird Organisations, which is highly regarded in the country. Of equal significance is the fact that your membership fee helps to promote the conservation and protection of birds and wildlife within Devon.

Membership is annual, 1st Jan – 31st December, and is available on payment of one of the subscriptions below. If you pay any membership fee on or after 1st July, that gives you membership for the remaining months of the current year AND the whole of the following year.


  • First Subscription on joining should be made using a credit/debit card.
  • Subsequent subscription payments may be paid by Direct Debit or Standing Order. Please contact for guidance.
  • Annual subscriptions are due on the first of January each year. Unpaid membership will lapse at the end of March.

Can we please encourage all new members who pay Income Tax to select ‘Gift Aid’ at the checkout as this adds 25% to the subscription value for Devon Birds.
