Durham Ornithology is a website for those who wish to develop their interest in birds and birdwatching.

It should be of interest to members of ornithological and bird-watching organisations such as the British Trust for Ornithology, Durham Bird Club, Teesmouth Bird Club, RSPB and its local groups as well as to “freelance” birders with no affiliation. Members of more general wildlife and conservation organisations, for example Durham Wildlife Trust, Darlington & Teesdale Naturalists’ Field Club and the Natural History Society of Northumbria, should also find useful information here as the site develops.

It does not intend to provide a “recent sightings” service. Other organisations deliver this offering, but pointers may be provided to such services as the “Links” area develops.
