North Ronaldsay Bird Observatory & Guest House
Book now for 2014
We are now taking bookings for the 2014 season with guest house, hostel and camping accommodation available. Visit us in the spring to witness the northbound migration of a vast variety of bird species as breeding seabirds, wildfowl and waders settle down to nest. In the summer months Storm Petrel ringing sessions take place regularly and are one of the highlights of a busy year. The autumn can be an exciting time when anything can and often does happen! Fantastic 'falls' of landbirds can occur and the Island has an imprssive reputation for rarities- Short-billed Dowitcher, Brown Shrike and Red-flanked Bluetail were just 3 of a long list of highlights from last year-and who could forget the WALRUS! Book your place now for Northern Isles birding at its very best.
2012 Bird Report
The latest North Ronaldsay Bird Report is now available. Click the image below for more details.
NRBO was established in 1987 to study and record the migrant birds that pass through Orkney's most northerly island each year. The number and variety of birds that arrive here on migration in Spring and Autumn can be spectacular, and North Ronaldsay is well-known as one of the best birdwatching sites in the country. The observatory also provides a variety of comfortable accommodation, including guest house, hostel and camping area, for visitors to the island.
