Yorkshire Wolds And Coast Birdwatching Tourevents_27_0_main

  • Yorkshire Wolds

Based at Highfield Farm, this 3-day tour focuses on the wonderful diversity of bird species migrating through our area in September. Over 100 species of bird are possible. We are ideally placed close to the River Hull and visits to Top Hill Low nature reserve can yield plentiful freshwater waders and wildfowl, including Green and Wood Sandpipers, large numbers of Wigeon and Shoveler  and resident birds such as Barn Owl in one of the best areas of the UK for owls.

Passerine migration on the coast is in full swing. This is peak time for birds such as the gorgeous Redstart and Whinchat. The scenic East and North Yorkshire coast is also one of the best in the country for scarce and rare migrants. We have a fairly good chance of annual birds such as Barred Warbler, Red-backed Shrike and Yellow-browed Warbler and recent years have brought Bonelli’s Warbler and Brown Flycatcher. In 2012 a YCN birding tour found an Arctic Warbler at Flamborough!events_27_1_main

YCN expert local guides will work hard to ensure you have memorable experiences. Our small group tours ensure you learn a great deal, from identification tips to field craft advice, as well as getting to grips with those difficult-to-find species. If you are interested in nature photography, there will be plenty of opportunities to learn new skills or improve your technique from our experienced and enthusiastic photographers.
