Spurn Migration Festival


Takes Great Step Forward into the Future.

We could not be more delighted to announce the birth of a new partnership. Following three consecutive Spurn Migration Festivals we knew we were ready for the next step. Over careful and very enjoyable consultation meetings with the BTO (British Trust for Ornithology), we have created that new partnership.,,,,


The Spurn Bird Observatory Trust (SBOT) will work in full collaboration with the BTO to continue to make the #migfest  the UK’s premier bird migration experience. Other partners will also help take the whole event forward.

The dates for 2016 are Friday 9th, Saturday 10th, Sunday 11th September.

With requests for bookings for 2016 already coming in and the rave reports from 2015 we’re anticipating another great year.


Don’t forget to dream…
