The BOU runs up to two conferences a year, an annual spring conference which is usually held at the University of Leicester plus a one-day autumn meeting usually in Peterborough.
Conferences tend to be themed on major ornithological topics of the day and attract expert speakers to share their latest research.

Tracking migration: drivers, challenges and consequences of seasonal movements | #BOU2019Warwick, UK
Migration has long captured the human mind and ingenious ways to unravel the processes involved in bird migration have long been at the core of ornithological research. Techniques such as ringing, the use of radars and flight tunnels and the deployment of bio-logging devices have gradually expanded our knowledge of this behaviour.
