Birding Discovery Day - Autumn Migration Special 2020

  • North and East Yorkshire Coast

Join us on our one-day bespoke migration specials, dedicated specifically to making the most of bird migration on the hallowed Yorkshire coast!

These unique adventures are limited to just four places per tour, ensuring you receive unrivalled attention and guiding from our expert on the ground. We will use our famous local knowledge and contacts to maximise the best of east coast migration on the day, and we'll provide you with an 'insider's insight' into the magic and mystery of this most incredible phenomenon throughout! Suitable for any ability level (although a basic fascination with bird migration is preferable!), we guarantee various special migratory species, and who's to say we won't find the big one on the day? 

Key birds: We'll read the weather conditions to make sure of the best possible returns, which may include:

On the land - thrushes, finches, chats, warblers and birds of prey;

Over the sea - skuas, shearwaters, ducks, terns, grebes, geese and divers;

On the coast - various seabirds and shorebirds; at local wetlands - waders, ducks, geese, swans and much more.

We'll visit the most productive habitats and locations and it may well be a combination of several (or even all!) the above.... expect to learn a lot, first hand and in the thick of it! Please note: transport is not provided on this day tour. All sites will be in close proximity to the meeting point to be arranged.
