What do birds mean to you?

Let us know!

This is an exciting project to discover what birds mean to people at a personal level and to research our own Suffolk names for birds.

Who we are:
A group of people with a common interest in natural history: ~ animals, plants and geology, the Suffolk countryside and the environment generally.

Our members range from beginners to expert amateurs and wildlife professionals. 

What we do:
We publish popular and scientific works on the natural history of Suffolk, hold members meetings and organise a biennial conference. Members’ findings are published in the thrice-yearly newsletter White Admiral ; in our transactions Suffolk Natural History and in the bird report Suffolk Birds. We also publish more definitive guides on various aspects of the natural history of Suffolk.
