    Scottish Birds - SOC's Journal

    Headquarters

Publishing original material, articles, notices, branch and Club news, along with up to date information on birds in Scotland (including reports of rare and scarce bird sightings), our members tell us that Scottish Birds is one of the key benefits of belonging to the SOC.

Scottish Birds is the quarterly journal for SOC members and is published in March, June, September and December annually in hard copy format (a digital version is coming soon!). Considered to be a leading authority on Scottish ornithology, Scottish Birds offers readers the complete story of birds in Scotland and acts as a channel of communication for SOC members.

Its different sections have been developed to meet the wide needs of the birdwatching community and it's a firm favourite amongst photographers for its first-class photography.

To judge the quality of the publication for yourself, take a sneak peek at the latest issue or download a recent sample issue. If you'd like to receive a hard copy sample issue in the post, click here.
