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
Meetings are held at Stockton Library starting at 7:30pm with Tea and Coffee
from 7pm. Visitors are welcome.
