Recent sightings of interest
A wide variety of wildlife feature this month as the milder weather brought resident birds into spring mode, late winter moths on the wing and the first few emerging butterflies from hibernation. Seashore work by YWT revealed discoveries and there were even a few dolphins passing our shores.
A new year dawns and with it brings renewed inspiration for discovering the natural wonders of North and East Yorkshire. On the 1st some of our old friends from 2016 were still with us giving people lots of pleasure

After the exceptional deluge of waifs and strays from far-flung lands throughout October, November here on the Yorkshire coast was a little less frenetic, although it was still an extremely busy and productive month by any standards.
