Scarborough Birders is a group of people interested in the birds of the Scarborough area, and provides a network and a voice for local birdwatchers. The group organizes an annual programme of indoor lectures, held in Scarborough, giving members, young or old, novice or experienced, the opportunity to learn more about birds, locally, nationally, or internationally, and to share experiences with fellow enthusiasts. The group collects all records of bird sightings in a defined recording area, and these are collated by group members. Records are ultimately submitted to the Yorkshire Naturalist’s Union to form part of the Yorkshire Bird Report.

In 2018 Yorkshire Coast Nature Directors Steve Race and Richard Baines donated £200 towards improvement works at Wykeham Raptor View Point. This is a fabulous place to watch birds of prey from and is one of the sites we visit on our Forest and River Birding Days CLICK HERE and our YCN Goshawk Safaris CLICK HERE
