The SocietyIntroduction

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

Originally known as Devon Birdwatching & Preservation Society, the name was shortened to “Devon Birds” in 2005.

Primarily dedicated to the study and conservation of wild birds, its current activities include:

  • Collecting and validating records for inclusion in a new Devon Atlas of wintering and breeding birds.
  • Improving and managing a wide range of reserves and hides.
  • Financially and physically supporting with the RSPB and others the protection of rare breeding birds in Devon.
  • Annually collating c60,000 bird records and turning this into the Devon Bird Report.

In order to achieve our aims we have developed this new website to help us communicate more effectively with our members and hopefully encourage you, our members, to volunteer your time and skills to advance these activities.
