Devon Birds is a county bird society with a long and distinguished history dating back to 1928.

Originally known as Devon Birdwatching & Preservation Society, the name was shortened to “Devon Birds” in 2005.

  • Collecting and validating records for inclusion in a new Devon Atlas of wintering and breeding birds.
  • Improving and managing a wide range of reserves and hides.
  • Financially and physically supporting with the RSPB and others the protection of rare breeding birds in Devon.
  • Annually collating c60,000 bird records and turning this into the Devon Bird Report.
