                                                           It's now 22 years since Burbage Bird Club was founded

                 I never thought in 1994 when I had the idea of starting a local club that it would still be going strong in 2016 

                                                Over the years the club has visited many fantastic birding locations including- 

                                           Majorca, Extremadura, Bulgaria, New England, Portugal, Florida, The Isles Of Scilly, 

                                  The Outer & Inner Hebrides, Islay, Orkney & Shetland plus many many birding sites in the UK.

               Unfortunately during this time some of our founder members have passed away but I assure you they will not be forgotten.

                                           Let's now hope the club and its new members will continue and grow for the next 22 years .
