Bird Pin Badges

I am a collector of Bird and Wildlife pin badges and would love to hear from others on here that collect the badges.

Currently the RSPB have released a new series of cards GNAH series 10 these are blue and white backing cards.

I know some use to be members of the Badge collectors club and this unfortunately closed we have no where to gain information of new badges being released so I thought lets keep each other up to date with information here.

New RSPB badge releases this year include-

Picture cards –

Corn bunting, Cattle egret, Sussex emerald moth, Robinhood Sherwood forest, Pied flycatcher. Jackdaw,

Series 10 –

Bloody henry crab, Curled Octopus, Collared dove, Privet hawmoth, Goshawk,


International Species –

Cory’s Shearwater, Black Stork African black oystercatcher

I will be updating more information when I have it

My son loves to pick up a couple of pins each time he visits an RSPB reserve. Yesterday he chose a Raven and a Swallow.

Nice badges RSPB pins are the easiest to come across but I do like many others and will update on many new releases as they occur.

I was at RSPB Conwy on Monday and picked up a rainbow Starling.
I don’t collect pin badges per se but I still have my Blue Peter badge and my school prefect badge......

Had a great morning badge hunting managed to pick up some great badges (will try and put images up on Sunday if poss) managed to bump into a few collectors from across the country and get some info on new releases will update later in the year.

But the RSPB stand was crushing early on and some of the rarer badges went early a fewof the stalls from last year were missing which was a shame as they had great badges on them but as I said I will update on Sunday.
