Observatories  are organisations focused on bird science, education and/or conservation, usually involving station-based  monitoring by bird ringing and census research. The summer seabird season at the ABO is a wonderful combination of totally hectic and tantalisingly tranquil Spring and Autumn migrations – a sight to behold. Visit us at ABO and see for yourself.
