Fair Isle Bird Observatory in 1982
Fair Isle Bird Observatory in 1982
The original bird observatory was established in 1948 in a collection of huts at North Haven and was replaced by this building nearby in 1969. The severe weather has taken its toll and a new observatory building was opened at this site in 2010. A small Heligoland trap is visible on the right of the building and in the distance is the prominent Sheep Craig and hill of Vaasetter.
