The bird society will introduce you to the wide range of bird species found on campus.  Whether you're already an expert or just interested in learning more about the birds in Reading, everyone is welcome to our events :)


Our regular events include:

  • Walks around the campus to enjoy and appreciate the wildlife around us
  • Trips to the Living rainforest, Dinton Pastures and other local nature reserves
  • Bird photography competition
  • Quiz nights
  • Film nights
  • Hawk Talks

Freshers events 2018:

  • Lake Walk: Sunday 30th September at 2pm (meet outside Palmer)
  • Lake Walk: Sunday 7th October at 2pm (meet outside Palmer) *Not Saturday 6th, due to rain*
  • Quiz Night: Wednesday 10th October at 7pm (Palmer G02)


We are also affiliated with the Berkshire Ornithological club, an external group of avid birders who have given us the option of offering you joint membership with them and the option to take part in the regular meetings they hold in the Palmer building on campus. This membership offer is at a discounted rate so not only would you get access to the events we hold, you will also be able to attend talks with the BOC with no extra charge.
