The Club has bird reserves at Belvide and Blithfield in Staffordshire, Ladywalk in Warwickshire and Harborne near the city of Birmingham in the West Midlands. We also have access agreements at Gailey Reservoir in Staffordshire and the Moors Pool at the Upton Warren reserve in Worcestershire.
We have local branches in Birmingham, Kidderminster, Solihull, Stafford and Tamworth, offering varied programmes of indoor meetings and field trips. Whether you are new to birding or have a long standing interest, a warm welcome awaits.
We publish a comprehensive Annual Report of the birds of the region together with five informative Newsletters during each calendar year.
