2018 Brochure

We are now offering customised birding tours in North and East Yorkshire with our guide Chris Bradshaw.

The county of Yorkshire offers fine birding throughout the year with a wide range of great birds to be found. Custom tours can range from a few hours through to a short break lasting a few days. We can arrange accommodation and transport for you or we can collect you for your birding trip from your hotel. For day trips we can offer pickups throughout the York/Scarborough/Hull area. Groups can be from one up to six participants.

There are a wide range of options and this is just a flavour of the places you may wish to visit and the species that can be seen during the course of the year. Superb migration hotspots such as Spurn, Flamborough, Filey and Scarborough all offer the chance to observe migrants, including frequent arrivals of rare and scarce species. Plus excellent sea-watching for shearwaters and skuas during suitable weather conditions.

Breeding seabirds including Puffins, Guillemots, Gannet and Kittiwakes on the cliffs at Bempton and Flamborough Head. Honey Buzzards and Goshawks breed in the forests of the North York Moors. Red Grouse and breeding Curlew, Golden Plover and Lapwing are all on the North York Moors.

Breeding woodland species such as Willow and Marsh Tit and Redstart.

Farmland birds of conservation concern remain fairly common in some areas with Tree Sparrow, Linnet, Yellowhammer, Reed Bunting and in the summer Turtle Dove all readily found.

Streams and rivers host resident Dipper and Grey Wagtails.

Wintering waders including Purple Sandpipers along the coast.

Regular wintering Mediterranean Gulls occur at Scarborough, whilst wintering Great Grey Shrikes are often to be found in the forests of the North York Moors.
