First for Britain – Spurn to host first National Migration Festival
6th-8th September 2013
Bird Migration is one of the great wonders of the natural world and the Spurn Peninsula, on Yorkshire’s East Coast is arguably the best place in Britain to witness this spectacle. At the Spurn Migration Festival visitors will have the chance to enjoy a packed programme of guided migration watches, walks, talks, activities and events led by the expert staff and volunteers of the host organisations. There will also be a celebration of art in the Lighthouse, digi-scoping and photography workshops, demonstrations of bird ringing and a Saturday night Hog Roast.
Day and weekend tickets and a more detailed itinerary will be available in the near future so please look out for more information on our websites: Spurn Bird Observatory – www.spurnbirdobservatory.co.uk, Yorkshire Wildlife Trust www.ywt.org.uk and Birding Frontiers – www.birdingfrontiers.com
The event is hosted by Spurn Bird Observatory and Yorkshire Wildlife Trust in partnership with Birding Frontiers.
