Opportunities for Ringers

The ABO offers excellent ringing facilities at four sites situated across the Island. Our Ringing research has made a major contribution to our understanding of the important role Alderney plays in Europe’s migration highways. Over 40,000 birds have been ringed since April 2016. We are delighted to welcome any licenced ringer’s (including trainees where supervision is available), from individuals to groups of up to ten. Our fully refurbished observatory and field centre is receiving very positive reviews from guests. See our accommodation page for images of the facility and our bookings page for availability. Further information about ringing and accommodation can be obtained from John Horton, the ABO warden [email protected] TEL:07815 549191
