'Bird Flu' Advice

We're sure you are all aware that Avian Influenza, or 'Bird Flu', is currently a major problem, with high levels of sickness and mortality seen in many areas, including Essex.

If you find a dead or dying bird, avoid touching it directly if possible.

2022/23 Calendar of Events

Our calendar of events for 2022/23 has been released and includes some excellent talks, both indoors at Chelmsford and online. There's also a full schedule of guided field trips, some by coach, some self-drive, to a selection of superb sites in Essex and further afield.

Birds of Essex - June 2022

A new day...a new time...and after Matt's Albatross shenanigans last month, maybe a new presenter..?

At least Steve G will definitely be back to discuss all things birding in Essex, with the latest news and sightings from around the county. There's also details of the Summer bird photography competition and our upcoming field trip to RSPB Lakenheath later this month. Plus we catch up with RSPB's Mark Nowers to find out how our Turtle Doves are doing.

Abberton Reservoir - 9th January

Due to the aggressive and high transmission rate of the ‘new’ Covid-19 variant the EBwS 9th January 2022 coach field trip meeting to RSPB Titchwell reserve has been cancelled.

We know that anyone booked on this trip will be disappointed, but the safety and well-being of participants is always the Society’s first priority.
