Firstly, a warm welcome to our website.

Flamborough Bird Observatory is run by a team of enthusiastic volunteers, whose aims include: studying and recording the birds of the area, creating and maintaining habitats for wildlife, and promoting conservation in the local community.

Our work is reliant upon the help and goodwill of our members. If you would like to support us, please join here!


Special thanks to George Stoyle for the use of his fantastic photos throughout the site.

We are also proud to be working closely with Yorkshire Wildlife Trust (based locally at the Living Seas Centre), RSPB Bempton Cliffs, and The Yorkshire Naturalists Union.  

Also thanks to our sponsors, Opticron and Yorkshire Coast Nature.
