Those of you who know Spurn will realise what a loss to the obs it is that we've had to close most of the buildings, only the warren cottage remains, the others are all deemed unfit for us to use anymore. That means no more 'room A' or as it is also known 'the naughty boys room'. This is a bit of a shock to the system really I've been staying in that room for 22 years, that's a big chunk of my life and some of the best nights I've ever had have been in this room and some of the best friends I've got have been met there. It really is the end of an era!
A birder originally from Wakefield West Yorkshire, now living in Beverley East Yorkshire. I mainly bird Spurn but do get around to other sites in the county. I'm pretty keen on my Yorkshire list (hence the name) and am currently on 377 which puts me in joint ninth place. Recently I'm more and more interested in self finding birds rather than twitching them which is good cos there aren't many county ticks flying around these days. I currently sit on the YNU record adjudication panel and the Spurn bird observatory committee.
