Bird Section Subs 2022
Dear birders, 2022 Bird Section subscriptions are now due. Annual subs pay for costs such as the hosting of this website, nestboxes on La Societe's nature reserves and upkeep of seven public bird hides. By paying just £5, you will be supporting and promoting local birdlife. Online payments only please - please email for banking details. Only Societe members can technically be section members but donations from non-members are welcome too! Many thanks and happy birding.

Barn Owl Survey 2021
As part of the ongoing Barn Owl survey, we are looking to locate as many breeding sites as possible. If you know of a box, barn or natural site which is being used, please submit the details as a sighting on this website or contact the Guernsey Biological Records Centre. Tel 233571 or email: Records will be treated confidentially.

Protection for local waders
Over the last 40 years, local populations of many wading birds have plummeted and some species have been lost entirely. The long-running 'Wader Count' survey shows that disturbance is a major factor in the decline. If you agree that our waders need urgent protection at key sites, please email the States of Guernsey Agriculture, Countryside and Land Management Service (ACLMS) at this address -
