Securing The Future

Spurn Bird Observatory is truly grateful for the support given by the ‘Friends of Spurn’. We want you to know that we don’t take that support for granted and in return we are always striving to provide something special, to make your visits to Spurn more memorable than before. You’ve already been very generous to us, enabling the observatory to purchase new land at Church Field and Corner Field. The habitat in these areas is being actively and thoughtfully managed to provide food and shelter for migrant birds. We are proud to offer ‘Friends’ free access to these areas, where they can venture off the public roads and explore our short trails.

Spurn Bird Observatory Trust and Yorkshire Wildlife Trust working relationship

As you may have seen Yorkshire Wildlife Trust recently placed a message on their website re the working relationship with SBOT. They have stated that they have decided not to renew SBOT’s license to operate on YWT land at the Warren and along the peninsular at Spurn due to continued reports of alleged “harassment at work and online from people associated with SBOT”.

For the avoidance of doubt, SBOT does not in any way condone any type of activity that could be considered to represent harassment or intimidation at work or online and also strongly refutes that it has been involved in or sanctioned any such behaviours.
