West Midland Bird Club

The West Midland Bird Club is the UK's largest regional ornithological society. It has been serving birdwatchers and ornithologists in the four English counties of Staffordshire, Warwickshire, Worcestershire and the Metropolitan West Midlands, with lectures, field trips, research, a bulletin and an annual report, since 1929. It is a registered charity, number 213311. [http://www.charity-commission.gov.uk/registeredcharities/showcharity.asp?regno=213311&submit=Run+Search Charity Commission register entry] ]

There are branches in Birmingham, Kidderminster, Stafford, Solihull and Tamworth.

It manages the Belvide Reservoir in Staffordshire, the Harborne Reserve in Birmingham, and the Ladywalk Reserve in North Warwickshire, as well as running an access-permit scheme for Blithfield Reservoir and Gailey Reservoir in Staffordshire. The Club co-founded and helps to manage the Bardsey Bird and Field Observatory. The Club has an information centre at Kingsbury Water Park (Warwickshire) and sponsors bird feeding stations at Cannock Chase (Staffordshire) and Draycote Water (Warwickshire).

Bill Oddie has been the Club's president since 1999. His first published article on birds appeared in the Club's 1962 Annual Report.
