Bird 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.

ABO is fortunate to be based in ‘The Nunnery’, the oldest standing building in the Channel Islands and the best preserved Roman small fort in the British Isles.  Of huge historic importance, the Nunnery has been turned into a publicly accessible heritage site for the benefit of Alderney.
