Welcome to SDOS 

For everyone interested in birds in and around Shoreham-By-Sea, West Sussex


Inevitably our meetings programme has been severely impacted by the Covid-19 pandemic and the consequent need to follow Government guidelines. All events listed in the Calendar and on our Programme are subject to change, possibly at short notice. Any such changes will be notified to members by email..

Our Society

SDOS provides a social focus for birding and related natural history interests in the Shoreham area. We organise monthly winter talks and field trips throughout the year. We engage in local habitat conservation and work with the community. We have a membersí email user group and a developing social media presence. Our mission is to maintain and enhance our membersí interest in birds and natural habitats, whatever their initial level of expertise.
