The Young Ornithologists' Club, junior section of the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds, has a new logo featuring a barn owl, great crested grebe, red admiral butterfly and an otter to reflect the club's interest in all wildlife, not just birds.
Now known as YOC, it is celebrating its 30th anniversary with birthday parties around the country, surveys of skylarks and song thrushes, a challenge to young people to suggest improvements to a wild place, and a new award for young wildlife artists. Membership of Pounds 7 a year includes: six issues of Bird Life, YOC roadshows, wildlife explorer days, and other events, and free entry to RSPB nature reserves.
