A message from the warden at FIBO

I am sure all birders are keen to know the latest about Fair Isle Bird Observatory...will it be open this year or not?

Well, as of yesterday (2nd April) I can tell you we will be CLOSED all of this year. The final (largest) funding package came through and we now have enough to proceed with the project. We are still £200,000 short of the required total but hope we can raise that through the coming year, so please do keep donating - no matter how small, it all adds up. Please help us to get that last amount. For more information check

I hope all our regular visitors can find somewhere almost as good to bird this spring & autumn and i look forward to welcoming you in the brand new Observatory in 2010.

all the best
