The NOA is supported by



Mrs Beryl Russell
The NOA is pleased to announce the receipt of a bequest from the estate of Mrs Beryl Russell, a former NOA member who lived in Thornham. The bequest will provide the NOA with long-term security, and it is particularly welcome at a time of financial uncertainty. The Association currently depends in part upon Basic Farm Payments and Higher Level Stewardship grants, and we are not certain that we will be able to rely of these sources of funding in future. We are very grateful to Mrs Russell for her generosity, and we are happy to fulfil Mrs Russell’s wish to site a bench within the Observatory reserve in her memory and that of her late husband Alan.







Our DVD, " Holme Bird Observatory – A Year" makes a great present, and is now available at the new bargain price of £5.00 including postage and packing. Click here for more information.
