Birding Discovery Day - Spring on the Yorkshire Coast, England

Join us on a full-day Spring Birding Discovery Day on Yorkshire’s spectacular coast.

It’s an exciting time to visit as huge numbers of long-distance migrants flood back to northern Europe from Africa and southern Europe.

You’re likely to see anything from various warblers, songbirds, raptors, wildfowl and hirundines to thousands of nesting seabirds - including Atlantic Puffins, Northern Gannets, Common Guillemots and Razorbills. You may even come across Red-backed Shrike, Rosy Starling and other rare wanderers!

You’ll visit some of the country’s most iconic birding hotspots to see these migrants. With our expert guide’s good knowledge of the area, we’ll make sure you’ll be in the thick of the action!

Our small group sizes (5 guests plus guide) mean you’ll have ample opportunity to learn about bird species, take photographs and travel at a more leisurely pace.

One thing’s for sure - these are incredible days and not to be missed!
