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.
We also have a range of fleeces, sweatshirts, polo shirts and caps at very reasonable prices.

Under present circumstances access to Seawatching and Car Park hides is now possible by agreement for up to four people, but please be considerate of others in view of ongoing COVID risks. For our other hides, due to size, we continue to recommend one household at a time only.
The Observatory building remains closed to visitors at present and we will continue to provide hand sanitiser on site for all visitors entering and leaving reserves.

Owing to recent visitor numbers, NWT Holme Dunes Reserve is trialling a booking system for its Car Park. Until 6th September 2021 those members and visitors wishing to park in the NWT Car Park will need to book online for Weekends, Bank Holidays, or in School Holidays to ensure they can get a place. Booking is not necessary outside these times, and is not required for access to any other part of the reserve. Parking remains free for NWT members and blue badge holders.
This may affect many of our members, and we would like to clarify that NOA members do not need to book to use the NOA car park at any time between dawn and dusk. For NOA members who also belong to NWT and wish to visit both reserves, please park in the NOA car park if you do not wish to book in advance for the Holme Dunes Reserve Car Park.
This is a polite reminder that our subscription rates increased on 1st January 2020, and we still need some members to update their standing orders for 2021.
If you pay by standing order and have not yet done so, please amend your standing order to the new rate. details are on this page
