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 2017 Conference, on Raptor Conservation in Wales was held in Monmouth, on Saturday 4 November. Places were sold out several weeks in advance and the full house enjoyed a packed day of presentations and for many people, the highlight was Steve Roberts’ highly entertaining advice on how to find raptor nests. All the sessions, including Steve’s, can be seen here

The 2018 Conference will be held in Bangor, Gwynedd on Saturday 3 November. Full details of the theme (likely to be around woodland birds) and booking information will be posted in July 2018. Because our annual conference now seems to fill up quickly each year, it is likely that we will give WOS members an advance booking period before general booking opens.
