Traffic Alert

Due to the rebuilding of a house at the eastern end of Broadwater Road, you may find the road to the Obs temporarily blocked by lorries delivering building material.

Please allow extra time for your visit.



The end of the year is approaching, and it is time for our annual Christmas Eve Sponsored Birdwatch.

As usual Sophie and her little helpers will be setting off before dawn to try and see as many species as possible . Last year a record 110 species were seen.

Please support us by sponsoring Sophie and her team, either as a fixed amount or on a per species basis.

You can do so in any of the following ways

  1. Sign the sponsorship form at the Obs
  2. Send an email to
  3. Make a donation at MyDonate

And don't forget, if you are a taxpayer and have signed a Gift Aid form, the Government will add a further 25% to your donation

Many thanks for your support.


Autumn migration might be over, but no one told this very late Yellow Browed Warbler, trapped and ringed on 15th November.
