The 2019 Conference  celebrated the 30th Anniversary of WOS and was held at the Penglais Campus at Aberystwyth University on Saturday 16 November 2019. A preliminary report of the Conference highlights is available here.

In addition to the usual raffle, which raised over £300 for WOS bursaries and awards, there was a sealed bid auction of an original framed Robert Gillmor painting of a Great Tit to raise funds for the new Birds of Wales but this did not reach the reserve price and the painting will be re-auctioned in 2020

The Welsh Ornithological Society Conference is held each November, supported by BTO Cymru and RSPB Cymru. Our aim is to move it around the country over a four-year cycle.

The 2020 Conference will be held on Saturday November 7th, probably in Carmarthenshire with a provisional theme of Birds and Farmland in Wales. Further details and booking information will be available on this website in July 2020.
