Birdwatch is the home of birding. An independent magazine established in 1992 by birders for birders, it has grown to become the leading monthly news and features magazine at the enthusiast end of the market.
Who we are and what we doBirdwatch has a primarily British focus and readership, but is now read in 36 countries across six continents worldwide each month. Birdwatch.co.uk is the online arm of the magazine, featuring the most prolific bird news output on the web and selected archived content from printed issues alongside web-only material, multimedia content and online services. The authority of the magazine and its website are underpinned by a world-class advisory panel and an extensive pool of skilled authors, photographers and artists.
Giving back to birdingBirdwatch regularly works with organisations such as the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds, the British Trust for Ornithology and BirdLife International to help promote conservation and research initiatives, and to raise awareness of and support for selected projects and campaigns.
In financial terms, we are also proud to have given back to birding in the following ways:
- Through our work with the British Birdwatching Fair, held every August at Rutland Water, we have contributed more than £58,000 towards worldwide conservation causes identified by the event’s organisers. Read more about some of these important projects here.
- The magazine is also a BirdLife Species Champion for the Critically Endangered Azores Bullfinch, and has so far raised almost £12,000 in support of Europe's rarest passerine - online donations to this important cause can be made at www.justgiving.com/priolo.
- In association with the RSPB and BirdLife International, we also organise the annual Birdwatch UK Bird Race. This one-day, county-based birding event has also raised many thousands of pounds for conservation work at home and overseas.
