Alderney Bird Observatory was established in March 2016 and is the only Bird Observatory in the Channel Islands. We need your support in order ensure the observatory continues to fulfil the incredible potential it has already demonstrated –


ABO Warden John Horton giving one of his popular talks detailing the new bird observatory project to local residents spring 2016.

Founder Membership
The States of Alderney have completed renovations on the Nunnery building, home of the ABO. Thanks to the States of Alderney, the wider community of Alderney and sponsorship support from Specsavers, Zeiss, Naturetrek and Merlin ringing supplies we have fully equipped the observatory and field centre accommodation. Your continued support is helping us work towards being able to pay our Warden John Horton.

Our Founder Membership scheme reflects the fact that many of our supporters will want to be part of this exciting phase of the ABO’s inception and moving forwards secure its long-term future. Of course we welcome all members to drop into the ABO and see how we are doing!
