Peterborough Bird Club

Dedicated to helping people learn more about wild birds, habitats and conservation

Welcome to PBC

The Peterborough Bird Club (PBC) was formed in September 1998, by a small group of birdwatchers, whose principle interest was in field work.

The aim of the PBC is to bring together all those with an interest in birds in the Peterborough area and to increase their knowledge and enjoyment of birds and other wildlife. We also aim to raise awareness of birds among the local people and to promote their conservation.

The outdoor programme runs from October to May or June.  Depending on where the trip is going, they can be half day or all day, by car or occasionally by coach. These are very easy going trips with a leader who helps you to find and identify the birds.
The outings are not primarily to find rarities but to enjoy seeing our common birds and the landscape in which they live as well as developing our own birding skills,
The weekday events are normally half day trips within 20 miles of Peterborough, whereas the weekend trips are normally whole day events involving longer distances. The club also runs a coach trip, normally once a year to a more distant venues. Recent coach trips have been to Bempton Cliffs in Yorkshire, Attleborough Reserve near Nottingham and Minsmere in Suffolk. 

You only need a pair of binoculars, suitable clothing for the time of year and a packed lunch, although often the reserves we visit have a cafe. Telescopes are not essential as the leader will normally carry one for everyone to use.

Full details of the trips including location, start times, and leaders are on the web-site. For non-coach trips you can just turn up at the start point and time. For coach trips you can book at the indoor meetings or by phoning Brian Lawrence on 01778 348336 or e-mail at brianlawrence519@btinternet.com
