The Cardiff University Ornithological Society (bird club) is for those with an interest in all things feathered. We host local events such as bird walks, bird-themed socials and educational talks, as well as trips to bird sanctuaries and nature reserves further afield. We also organise volunteering and conservation events so this is a great society to get involved in if you want to boost your CV. See our facebook page to keep up to date with upcoming events! https://www.facebook.com/pg/CUOrnithSoc/events/ or follow us on Instagram @CUOrnithsoc
CUOS is an opportunity to meet with people who have similar interests and to get involved in the conservation and support of the species that many people love. We welcome anyone, no matter your experience - from those who are just starting out, to fully-fledged twitchers.
In the past year we have had loads of great trips and activities, including trips to Cardiff Bay Wetlands, Forrest Farm and Caerphilly Castle as well as a camping trip to Pembrokeshire to visit Ramsey Island and a Q&A event with Iolo Williams! We also regularly help out with the Wetland Bird Surveys in Roath Park and many of our members also got involved in some great volunteering schemes such as the BTO's nest box scheme and the National Rook Survey, we also run many popular socials through out the year.
