Welcome to the Teesmouth Bird Club website.
The Teesmouth Bird Club was founded
in 1960 and is the recognised authority on the birds of the former County of
Cleveland, now consisting of the unitary authorities of Hartlepool,
Stockton-on-Tees, Middlesbrough and Redcar & Cleveland. The Club publishes the
annual Cleveland Bird Report summarising the sightings of the year.
The Club is active in bird
protection and mounts objections to developments that it considers will have
adverse effects on our local birdlife. It is also consulted by developers and
planners on bird matters.
For the benefit of members, the
Club holds monthly evening meetings from September to April, organises local
guided walks and trips to birdwatching areas, and provides access to some
private sites. Communication is by this website and by the newsletter published
three times a year. Membership is open to everyone from experts to beginners. We
are especially keen to help beginners, who are provided with an informative
welcome pack and offered personal tours of bird sites.
Meetings are held at Stockton Library starting at 7:30pm with Tea and Coffee
from 7pm. Visitors are welcome.
