Welcome to Birds in Clyde
Whether you are new to birdwatching, an experienced birder, or somewhere in between, the purpose of this website is to get you involved and further your enjoyment of Scotland's wonderful birdlife.
The Scottish Ornithologists' Club (SOC) was established in 1936 and exists to promote the study, enjoyment and conservation of wild birds and their habitats across Scotland. This is the website of the Clyde Branch of the SOC, which coordinates recording and activities, with regular meetings and outings.
The highly pathogenic avian influenza (HPAI) H5N1 that has devastated some bird populations in Scotland has been confirmed in both our neighbours on Arran and in Ayrshire.
The situation in the Clyde area is not clearly known at present, but please follow the advice on the poster in the accompanying panel (click for larger version).
More from NatureScot can be read on their website.
