Title: How to join Andalucia Bird Society

To join Andalucia Bird Society

Unlike the majority of societies, who normally work on subscriptions running only for the calendar year regardless of when subscriptions are received, we have now decided that any new member paying their membership fees will enjoy 365 days membership from the date of payment. Of course those who have already paid their subscriptions for 2009 will also have the same benefits applied. We believe this to be the correct and fairest way to treat our members.

We hope this good news will further encourage interested and potential members to join our progressive society.

Please remember that the forum and the main ABS homepage have separate log in systems. The forum is located at and the main site is located at

A step by step guide

2. Once you have received your approval to become a member of the forum you can subscribe to full membership of the Society. To do this you will need to login with your user name and chosen password.

To the right of España there is a scroll marker to go through various languages. If, for example, you want the screen in English, simply scroll down to Reino Unido and select. The screen will appear in your chosen language and you can then complete the payment process. Please remember to have your credit card to hand.
