Updated November 2021

Due to the Covid 19 outbreak, the BOS is holding all Indoor Meetings in 2021 via Zoom.  Instructions for joining these meetings will be sent to all members a few days prior to each meeting.  However, it is hoped that meetings at the Banbury Cricket Club will resume in January 2022 - but this will be reviewed regularly if the situation and Government Guidelines change.

Please adhere to all Government restrictions and advice regarding travel and social gatherings.  While bird watching is permissible and even beneficial for mental and physical health, please be sensitive to the feelings of landowners and your impact on local communities and help foster good relationships with local communities for the future.  Please continue to submit your records even if just from your garden.

We urge you to check the latest government guidelines regularly.

Stay safe and keep well.
