Carsington Bird Club Dorothy Evans - 01246 238421 - Carsington Bird Club was formed in 1992 when the construction of Carsington Reservoir was completed, landscaped and opened to the public for various outdoor activities. The concept was to get together a group of interested people to monitor and encourage the birds and wildlife around the reservoir and to help with any conservation work that would encourage as many species as possible into the area. There have been 206 bird species recorded around the reservoir so far and we have dedicated a page to this list...
