In a message sent to AY News yesterda, Alderney Bird Observatory director, Neil Harvey moved to refute recent public statements made by the States of Alderney in a press release on the future of the lease on The Nunnery, claiming ‘factual errors’ in the reporting.
Mr Harvey said: “The States’ press release just like the Billet contains factual errors. A lease was never signed, so there never has been one, only our Tenancy Agreement which we have adhered to but the States have not!”

Neil Harvey also refuted a statement that the ABO have applied for a limited grant this year which was agreed.
“We applied for a grant last year which was rejected. We believe the grant was applied for by GSC after the Bird Wardens employment was terminated to cover 2/3 months salary. We were not involved in that, and haven’t received it!”
