Fair Isle Bird Observatory & Guesthouse

Fair Isle Bird Observatory rebuild

Following the devastating fire which completely destroyed the Obs on 10th March 2019, we have been working extremely hard towards rebuilding it.

At present, we are aiming to reopen in 2022 which we appreciate is a tight schedule given all the work that is involved in building ‘Obs 5’. We are determined to try and meet this target.

We intend to post regular updates about our progress in working towards this coupled with news of the ongoing ornithological work we are carrying out.
