Henfield Birdwatch

Henfield Birdwatch Cover Photo
Henfield Birdwatch was formed in 1998 by Mike Russell and other local enthusiasts to start an ongoing survey of the birds in the Parish of Henfield, and to involve as many people in the community as possible. In addition of course, the aim is to generate plenty of interest in local birds and other wildlife, and so help with their conservation.

Over 100 people took part in the first survey, contributing over 37,000 records making it the largest community wildlife survey in the UK and from which the Henfield Birdwatch 2000 report was published. Our 2010 report won the British Trust for Ornithology’s “Marsh Local Ornithology Award”.

Henfield Birdwatch 2015 arrived on 20th November 2015, and is an all-colour account of how our bird life is doing, with photos and articles from our most active local birdwatchers. It's available for £7 from Val Bentley, Lanacre, Blackgate Lane, Henfield, BN5 9HA Tel: 01273 494723 or e-mail chetsford@talk21.com
