What To Look Out For
Year-round wildlife alerts and top tips on common wildlife to look out for on the coast of North and East Yorkshire
After a great start to spring with late March sunshine it’s time to discover some of our new arrivals in Yorkshire’s wildest corners. This month Yorkshire Coast Nature’s Richard Baines focuses on birds nesting in our harshest places.
Whatever the weather is like, March brings with it lengthening days. Snakes alive, its early spring! A new awakening for nature and for us! YCN’s Richard Baines explores what to look out for during the coming month.
Colder weather has slowly crept into 2017, but there isn’t much snow yet…. This is good news for some birds such as Kingfishers and Barn Owls.
January; the start of a new year, an opportunity to escape the cold interior and hit the beach! You will be in good company as many animals take shelter on the coast in mid-winter. Temperatures are normally slightly milder as the influence of wind and salt reduces the severity of ice and snow.
Winter sun is a precious commodity as daylight becomes shorter towards the solstice on the 21st December. For the majority of wildlife, shorter days and colder temperatures mean less food so definitely not the month to be giving birth.
