Derbyshire Ornithological Society - Bird Watching

Derbyshire is a beautiful County situated right in the heart of England.

Derbyshire covers an area of over 1035 square miles with habitats ranging from the broad water meadows of the Trent Valley in the south to the gritstone moorlands in the north. More than half of Britain's first National Park, the Peak District National Park, lies within the county. Dovedale in the limestone dales area in the east of the County is a lovely tourist spot with plenty of walking. The White and Dark Peak areas also provide good walking and climbing opportunities.

A rich species diversity reflects this range of habitat and although an inland county, Derbyshire boasts a species total of more than 300, over 130 of which breed.

The Derbyshire Ornithological Society, formed in 1954, is a voluntary organisation with a membership of over 500. It is a registered charity within the UK and dependant almost entirely on membership subscriptions and donations.
