NEW SPURN BIRD OBSERVATORY BUILDING APPEAL
As many readers will probably know there is an appeal to raise funds by the Spurn Bird Observatory Trust to build a new Observatory building in Kilnsea. If you have a few pouns to spare please consider giving to this very worthy cause which will help with the Observatory’s work in both monitoring migrating birds and also with the birding education projects which are helping to generate future birders/conservationists. For the link to the Just Giving page to make a donation please click HERE. Go on you know it makes sense!
