Are you a taxpayer? If so, every £1 you donate could be worth £1.25 to us, increasing the income for S.B.B.O.T at no cost to yourself. Gift Aid forms are available at the Field Centre.

For more than seventy years, the Sandwich Bay Bird Observatory Trust has been pivotal in protecting and developing an area of outstanding importance for birds and other wildlife here on the Kent coast.

Most of this work, including the construction and maintenance of a purpose-built field centre, has been financed by donations, legacies, grants, and by the relentless fund-raising enthusiasm of volunteers.

With environmental and climatic challenges looming, there is so much more work to be done to protect and develop our natural resources for the future. For example, we hope to enhance our wetland habitats, create more wildflower grassland, and improve our provision of disabled-friendly hides.


Some of our members make monthly donations to our funds.  This is a relatively painless way to donate to us, as you may hardly notice the sum leaving your bank account each month.  Such donations are, of course, greatly appreciated.
