Birding Discovery Day - Coastal Birds 2020

  • North and East Yorkshire

The Yorkshire coast is one of the greatest places in the UK for birds and birding. We're spoilt for choice, with the biggest and best seabird colony on the British mainland, three bird observatories, fantastic wetlands and a legendary reputation for breeding, wintering and migrating birds. Spring is the season when our birdlife explodes into life along the coast, and the only problem can be trying to squeeze it all in!

These specially-tailored one-day tours are designed for everyone, from beginners to the more experienced, who wish to join an enthusiastic small group experience where they will feel part of a team. Through a combination of our unrivalled local knowledge and experience and up-to-the-minute information from our network of contacts on the coast, we'll create memorable days, no two of which are ever the same.

We'll tailor the day to maximise the best birding opportunities, but expect highlights to include over a quarter of a million breeding seabirds in the Greater Flamborough Head / Bempton cliffs colony (including Atlantic Puffins and the largest Gannetry on mainland UK), spring songbird migrants, raptors, waders and wildfowl at carefully selected locations and much more.....

Please download our ‘What to Expect from Each Season’ to see more details and which birds you may see on your trip.

These one-day tours are designed for anyone, from beginners to the more experienced, who wish to join an enthusiastic small group tour where they will feel part of a team.
