Carsington Bird Club was formed in 1992 when the construction of Carsington Water reservoir was completed and opened to the public.
The concept was to get together a group of interested people to monitor and encourage the birds and wildlife around the reservoir and to help with any conservation work that would encourage as many species as possible into the area. The main activity is bird watching and there are 4 hides positioned round the reservoir where there is the widest scope to see the various habitats. These are all open to the public and all of them have disabled access.
The Club holds indoor meetings in the winter months between September and March in Hognaston Village Hall and they are held on the 3rd Tuesday of the month. A variety of speakers are invited to talk on subjects connected mainly with birds but also with wildlife in general. The monthly meetings between April and August are outdoors with an evening stroll bird watching around the Reservoir and surrounding areas. To contact any of the CBC Committee, click here
