The Leicestershire & Rutland Ornithological Society (LROS) was founded in 1941, and now has around 600 members. Our aims are to promote the study, conservation and enjoyment of birds and birding in Leicestershire and Rutland, to record and publish members' sightings, and organise survey work to further our knowledge of the birds of Leicestershire and Rutland. See the 'Bird Recording' section for details of how you can share these objectives.

The LROS organises a range of other activities and facilities for its members. These include a monthly Newsletter, an Annual Bird Report, outings, indoor meetings and fieldwork. You will find full details of these and other Society activities in the 'About LROS' section.

The LROS is entirely run by volunteers and always appreciates any help members can offer.
