As our membership base has grown particularly in recent years this has enabled us to increase the amount of work we do as an Observatory, creating habitat for birds on our land in the Obs Garden, Church Field and Corner Field, improving the annual Spurn Wildlife report and building a log cabin in the Obs garden to accommodate volunteers for years to come.

Spurn Bird Observatory has a long standing tradition of supporting young people with a keen interest in birding, ringing, and all things ornithological.
Over the years, many birders have spent time at the Obs in their younger days, where they have been encouraged to hone their skills and experience and develop a life-long passion for birds. Many have continued to return year after year, becoming ‘regulars’ and ‘Friends of Spurn’, whose love of Spurn draws them back frequently to witness all that the amazing birding year has to offer.Find out more
