Event description

Description

A day visit to a working bird observatory to see how migrating birds are studied; we will meet the volunteers staffing the Isle of May Bird Observatory and hear about their work monitoring migrating birds; there might even be scarce birds to see. Leader: Stuart Rivers

Please note: Although this event is free, you will have to book and pay for your boat ticket(s) for 13 September sailing at 09:15 hours directly with the ferry company here. Please confirm you have purchased your ferry ticket with us within two weeks or your booking for this event may be cancelled. Ferry prices are £14-£28.

We anticipate car-sharing from Aberdeen: an offer of a contribution to fuel and parking costs would be appreciated.


This is part of the Aberdeen Birding Calendar 2020, a unique series of events for beginners and experienced birders alike.

ABC - The Aberdeen Birding Calendar is an exciting, different, programme of outdoor gatherings for those new to birding as well as lifelong enthusiasts. Enjoyable field meetings where you can explore particular topics in a bit more depth, meet like-minded people, share experience and hopefully have a good day out!

A skilled leader will briefly introduce each topic and co-ordinate a field outing. The trips will have a short session to set the scene for the day, and/or as a follow-up review.

Everyone is welcome - Whether you are just starting out or can share your experience on an enjoyable day. You don’t need to be a member of the SOC.


Dates may be changed due to the weather.

Please bring suitable clothing and footwear and take care on roads, steep or slippery surfaces.
