Welcome to the website of the RSPB Sheffield Local Group. RSPB local groups are a great way to meet friendly, like-minded people in your area while discovering more about birds and wildlife.
We hold our indoor meetings on the first Thursday of most months and run frequent midweek and weekend walks in and around Sheffield as well as coach trips to nature reserves further afield.
A key objective of our group is to raise money to support the RSPB’s work – on a local, national and even global scale.
