National Conference

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 2018 Conference, on Welsh Woodlands and their birds will be held at Neuadd Reichel, Bangor on Saturday 3 November. Places are likely to be sold out several weeks in advance and priority booking for WOS members is now open (£30 + VAT), with general booking for non-members opening on Saturday 1st September (£35 + VAT).  As usual, we have reserved six free places for 16-25 year olds and if you’d like to apply for one of these please email Keith Noble at directly rather than follow the Eventbrite link – and free means no VAT! The full programme can be seen here . Tickets can be paid for by credit card or cheque – please go to Eventbrite to book. Although we are a charity, we have to charge VAT on ticket sales, as the conference bookings are being handled by Eventbrite.

All the sessions from the 2017 Conference on Raptor conservation in Wales, can be seen here.

The 2019 Conference will mark the 30th Anniversary of WOS and the conference will be a special one. It’ll be held in Aberystwyth on Saturday 16 November 2019 and full details and booking information will be posted in July 2019.
