About me

Location Near Skegness, Lincolnshire, United Kingdom
Introduction Gibraltar Point National Nature Reserve and Gibraltar Point Bird Observatory are managed and run by The Lincolnshire Wildlife Trust (LWT). Ringing at the Bird Observatory is carried out by LWT volunteers, whilst daily recording of birds, moths and other wildlife is carried out by LWT Wardens, the Bird Observatory Team, volunteers and visitors. Bird ringing started at Gibraltar Point in 1949 and has continued to this day, with over 200,000 new birds ringed by a large number of both local and visiting ringers. The present Group Leader (Ringer in Charge) of the Bird Observatory is George Gregory, and the Secretary is Michael Polling. This site is written by the Bird Observatory Team, and contains news of bird sightings and bird ringing, along with news of other wildlife on the reserve. Please check back regularly and we shall endeavour to keep you informed of our activities. Above all, please enjoy our Observatory Blog.
