Autumn Events

With the autumn starting to kick into action we're putting back on our guided walks every Tuesday, Saturday and Sunday and ringing demonstrations every saturday in Church Field. 


Autumn Guided Walks 09:00 – 12:00 – £10 per person for members of Friends of Spurn, £15 for non-members.

Want a personal guide to show you all the exciting migrants that might be present or arriving around Spurn? This is the event for you! We’ll take you around the most popular locations within a mile or so of the Bird Observatory, calling into Church Field where you can see our Observatory Warden carrying out bird ringing if weather permits.

Our first guided walk will be on Tuesday 17th August and thereafter every Tuesday, Saturday and Sunday from until Sunday 7th November.

PLEASE pre-book your attendance by emailing Tim Jones our Operations Manager on  info 'at'

Autumn Ringing Demonstrations 08:00 – 11:00 – Every Sunday from 28th August – 6th November in SBOT’s Church Field. Free to attend.

We’ll hopefully show you migrant birds up close during the ringing process. Learn all about why we ring birds, how we do it and where ringing shows us these birds are going to and coming from. Just turn up in Church Field, and our warden Paul Collins will present outside the green ringing lab. Enjoy learning more about the wonderful birds all around you. Donations welcomed to help support out work.



Private Guided Walks

A tailor-made service to maximize your Spurn birding experience. Specially tailored to suit your personal needs, whether for an individual or group. Our guides are hand-picked from the wonderful group of top birdwatchers who are lucky enough to be very familiar with Spurn and have a passion to showcase the birds of Spurn to visitors, ensuring your birding experience is the best it can be. This can focus on a specific species group or a general tour and can also include a ringing demonstration if you’d like.

You can arrange your private guided walk at a time and date to suit you.

Get in touch on info 'at' to arrange details.


Please note the following: All transportation is the responsibility of the participant(s), the guided walks will be on foot from the Observatory.
