With insects suffering from the cold weather eyes were trained on coastal watch points as a steady trickle of rare birds kept birders on their toes. It was a great start to the month in the Spurn area on the 1st with American Wigeon, Red-necked Phalarope and two Little Stint.

Wildlife Sightings - May 2015

  • Thu 4th Jun, 2015

After a relatively mild April, May 2015 will be remembered for the unseasonably cool conditions. A north-westerly airflow over the UK dominated the first half of the month. The Met Office recorded May as the coldest since 1996. Temperatures in Leeds only reached 16-18° on two dates.
