    Kent Ornithological Society was founded in 1952 with the express aim of recording sightings of birds in the county and to monitor fluctuations in bird populations. Throughout the years, the KOS has accumulated huge amounts of data which have proved useful when important sites are threatened with development. We work closely with the RSPB, the BTO and the Kent Wildlife Trust to endeavour to preserve as much as possible of the wonderful variety of habitats with which the county is blessed. Our data was used, for example, to help overturn plans for a huge international airport which was to be constructed on Cliffe marshes – now it's an important RSPB reserve!
