We are a small group with a dedicated band of volunteers who give up their time freely for the benefit of the group. We are always on the lookout for assistance with events and help with the running of the group. If you can give just a few hours a month, to help advance the group and keep SK58 Birders moving forward- then contact any of the group organisers.
