Spurn in the 1950s

Apologies for anyone expecting a blow-by-blow historical account of the early days of one of the east coasts premiere birding hotspots...

But for anyone not familiar with the history of the Bird Observatory, then either get hold of a copy of the recently-published second edition of 'Bird Observatories of Britain and Ireland' (co-edited by a certain BirdGuides staff member) or have a quick look at this film in the Yorkshire Film Archive.

Of course, some things at Spurn just don't change in six decades...
