people with a shared interest in birds and birding.

What to look for in Bedfordshire
Early July is still a good time to observe breeding activity with plenty of fledglings around and birds carrying food often for second broods.
August sees the start of the autumn birding season as passerine migrants from northern parts of Britain mix with locally fledged youngsters in our
scrub and hedgerows while waders from further north can be found moving through where suitable habitat exists.
