Worcestershire (now 1,741 km2) occupies the South-West portion of the Club's region. To the west, the county is bordered by the Malvern Hills, while the southern part of the county is bordered by the northern edge of the Cotswolds. The two major rivers flowing through the county are the Severn and the Avon. Other than the city of Worcester, there are several other small to medium sized towns including Bromsgrove, Evesham , Kidderminster, Malvern, Pershore and Redditch. The north of the county is still largely rural, although the northern-most fringe is part of the Birmingham conurbation.
Worcestershire borders (clockwise from the West) Herefordshire, Shropshire, Staffordshire, Warwickshire, the West Midlands county and Gloucestershire.
You can observe birds anywhere in the county — from your own garden or windowsill, to local parks, but below we list places of special interest.
The Club has a Kidderminster Branch.
Please report your sightings to the Worcestershire County Recorder.

Worcestershire County Council and the following councils have responsibility for a number of issues which affect birds, including planning, pollution control, managing parks and running museums.
Although we record birds according to modern county boundaries, some wildlife (such as insects and plants) is recorded according to Watsonian Vice-Counties , based on traditional county boundaries and unaffected by subsequent local government changes. The Worcestershire vice-county is numbered “37”.
