The web site for anyone with an interest in the birds of the Severn Beach area on the mid Severn Estuary. Severn Beach is a coastal village in  South Gloucestershire and situated at the top corner of the Bristol Channel, England. The web site is dedicated to all birders, past and present, who have visited the patch on a regular basis.

Some species photographs can be accessed from the Systematic List page. All photographs are taken on Severnside and copyright Paul Bowerman (unless stated otherwise).

Special thanks must go to my wife and sons who forever put up with me popping out for a while!

The recent sightings page is usually updated daily using reports provided from visiting birdwatchers. I can only report sightings that I am told about so if you find anything unusual please let me know.

Occasionally, information and pictures  relating to other interesting wildlife on and off Severnside will be presented.

We hope that you find the site useful
