    The North Sea Bird Club was formed in 1979 as the result of the efforts of a few individuals in the oil industry and Aberdeen University, who saw a unique opportunity to obtain long-term data from offshore on birds and other wildlife.


    The stated aims of the Club are to:

    • Provide a recreational pursuit for people employed offshore
    • Obtain, collate and analyse observations of all birds seen offshore
    • Produce reports of observations, including an annual report
    • Promote the collection of data on other wildlife offshore

    Currently we hold in excess of 120,000 records of birds, cetaceans and insects reported since 1979.
