Description
Alderney Bird Observatory (ABO) was founded in March 2016 by the Alderney Wildlife Trust to study bird migration and the island’s seabird colonies.

Its HQ is based at ‘The Nunnery’, the oldest standing building in the Channel Islands and the best preserved Roman small fort in the British Isles. The Nunnery provides accommodation for visiting guests and their stay at the field centre not only helps support ABO’s work but also contributes towards the maintenance of this important heritage site.
