The purpose-built Bird Observatory was opened in 1969 and encased in blockwork in 1989. The current observatory was opened in July 2010.

By 1982 the wood fascia of the observatory had been stained a darker hue HZ2272 : Fair Isle Bird Observatory in 1982. New observatory buildings were opened in July 2010. I visited it within a month of its opening. HZ2272 : Fair Isle Bird Observatory reopened June 2010.
