Welcome

Welcome to the website of the Wensum Valley Birdwatching Society

 WVBS is an active and friendly Norfolk  birdwatching society with  c100 members. Our indoor meetings  are held on the third Thursday of each month at 7.30p.m, and feature a guest speaker. They are held at Great Witchingham Village Hall, Hubbards Loke, NR9 5AZ. (Directions to the hall can be found at www.gwvh.org.uk).

We also organise bird-watching field trips each month to different outdoor venues.

Details of our activities are advertised here, on our Twitter site and in local parish magazines. For more  information about  WVBS, follow this website where you find further details of forthcoming events, and also recent reports about our Indoor Meetings and Field Trips.

 WVBS covers the area of the Wensum Valley  in Norfolk which follows the River Wensum between Norwich and Fakenham. (A map can be found by following the link in “Submit Your Bird Sightings”).

Formed in March 2003, the society has the following aims:

  1. Encourage and share the enjoyment of birdwatching in the Wensum Valley.
  2. Encourage novice birdwatchers to take an active part in birdwatching.
  3. Share information with other members.
  4. Gather and collate data on birds in the area.
  5. Participate in regional and national surveys within the defined area.
  6. Liaise with other conservation groups within the area and more widely.
  7. To administer the society in an environmentally sensitive manner.

We have a good mix of experienced birders and beginners and we are always happy to welcome new members and visitors to any of our activities. (If you are interested in joining follow the heading for “Join Us”).

We look forward to welcoming you to one of our outdoor meetings, or our indoor meetings at Great Witchingham Village Hall, click here for directions

Rutland Birdfair : This year the Birder’s Glastonbury is to take place on the 16th – 18th August. Josh Leeder is investigating the possibility of booking a coach to take club members for one of the days, and a local company is offering to provide a service for £37.00 per person (tbc), which includes the entrance price, provided there is sufficient interest. He may even open the trip up to Narvos members to ensure sufficient numbers to make it a worthwhile project. Please speak to Josh or contact Alan Hughes if you think that you may be interested.
