The Shropshire Ornithological Society (SOS) was formed in 1955 with the following aims:
- to encourage the study and protection of birds in Shropshire and elsewhere,
- to organise a wide range of activities and produce publications with this objective, and
- to co-operate with other bodies with similar aims.
The Society plays an important part in the national network of Bird Clubs. This includes the production of an annual Shropshire Bird Report, which contains the systematic list of all sightings reported to the County Bird Recorder, together with articles and reports on all aspects of bird study within Shropshire.
The Society covers the County for national surveys and makes past records available for current research. It is actively involved in the partnership between the British Trust for Ornithology and county bird clubs.
SOS is involved in the management of several sites in the County, to ensure they remain attractive habitats for birds. Venus Pool, an important wetland, is owned and managed by the Society.
