Birds of West Sussex

    

The Sussex Ornithological Society was formed in 1962 by a small group of young people and has grown to become one of the largest county bird clubs in Great Britain with a current membership of around 2000.

Members receive quarterly newsletters and a copy of the award-winning annual Sussex Bird Report. Simon Biddle has written a fascinating account of the first 50 years of the SOS.
