Compared to this time last year December 2017 was a colder affair with two short periods of snow. Find of the month goes to birder Jonnie Fisk who found a Lesser Yellowlegs near near Spurn, a first for that site! The most popular bird however was a very smart male Desert Wheatear at Whitby

Wildlife Sightings - November 2017

  • Tue 5th Dec, 2017

Wildlife Sightings - October 2017

  • Wed 1st Nov, 2017

It’s amazing how two autumns can be so different! After the Siberian high pressure weather system and birds of 2016 it was all about Atlantic storms from the west in October 2017. Despite the shift there were many highlights. Rarest sightings include a massive Leatherback Turtle and a Cliff Swallow.
