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.

As from January 2017 our indoor meetings will be held on the third Thursday of each month 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 this page).

Our indoor meetings feature a guest speaker and we also organise bird-watching field trips each month to various venues and usually a longer trip each year to more distant parts.

Promotion of our activities are advertised in the press, parish magazines and posters. For more  information about WVBS activities follow the website for further details of forthcoming events and 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
