About Durham Local Group

This small, but very active, RSPB local group has a full programme of indoor meetings from October to April, and many outdoor meetings throughout the year. The group welcomes new members, both RSPB members and the general public. Friendly help is on hand at field meetings to assist newcomers who would like to improve their bird-identification skills.

We have a full programme of events for 2024 including field and indoor meetings.

We also have a Group page on iNaturalist featuring images taken on our field meetings.  Read our profile and view the images.
