About the BWA

The BWA is an association of enthusiasts interested in keeping, breeding and conserving all kinds of waterfowl - wildfowl, domestic ducks and geese.

Young runners

We are a registered charity dedicated to education about waterfowl and their conservation, as well as to raising the standards of keeping and breeding ducks, geese and swans in captivity.

The BWA offers members a wide range of services and facilities to help them get more enjoyment from waterfowl. We welcome beginners through to experts.
