New research station and ringing room ~ 16 Sep 2021

We are delighted to announce a move from our old facility at the Nunnery to a new purpose ringing room and research station overlooking Longis Bay. This is a much better location for viewing birds and closer to the nets.

The opening was attended by Alderney President William Tate, his wife Gabrielle, the ABO committee members and many supporters.

Work now goes on to open our new headquarters on the cliffs near Essex Castle.


 

Ben Nevis climb June 2021

Ben Nevis climb June 2021

Helen McGregor, chairman of the ABO directors, is planning to climb Ben Nevis  at the end of June to support the scientific work of  the Alderney Bird Society.
The States of Alderney have terminated the ABO’s tenancy of the Nunnery as they want all the island charities to benefit from it – rather than just us.
This has left a hole in our finances, can you help out please?

Donations may be made with this link or by clicking the “Donate” button at the top of this page.
