Welcome to the website of the Wensum Valley Birdwatching SocietyNuthatch 2015 

The WVBS is an active and friendly Norfolk  birdwatching society with over 100 members. We always welcome new members and membership is open to all – follow the Join Us header bar for membership details.

Our indoor meetings which are held on the Third Thursday of each month, feature a guest speaker and we also organise bird-watching field trips each month to different venues and usually one or two longer trip each year to more distant parts. The indoor meetings are held at Great Witchingham Village Hall, Hubbards Loke, NR9 5AZ. (Directions to the hall can be found at www.gwvh.org.uk or by clicking on the link at the bottom of the page).

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

The 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”). It is our hope that our activities will foster an interest in birds and encourage a wider appreciation of our natural world – an ever more important task as more demands are being made on our environment.

We look forward to welcoming you at Great Witchingham Village Hall, click here for directions
