31st December 2013 – and Happy New Year from FBOG!

A quiet end to the year, with five Velvet Scoters and two Dark-bellied Brent Geese at Hunmanby Gap, and 108 Oystercatcher in the Brigg high tide roost.

Happy New Year to all, and especially to FBOG members and supporters – thanks for your continued support, your positive feedback and your involvement over the last twelve months.

2013 was a great year for the Observatory, both front-of-house and behind the scenes, with much progress made in many areas, talented new blood adding to an already highly-skilled team, and a great enthusiasm within the group.

There’s plenty of positive developments on their way in 2014 (which members will hear about first via newsletters – plenty to get involved with should you wish!) and plenty more to come via this website – keep checking back, there’ll be new material added regularly in the near future.
