Birdwatching Trip in Yorkshire

Join us on a birding trip in Yorkshire & safari with a difference as we go on the search for the incredible elusive 'Nightjar'. This nocturnal bird is famed for its churring love call and aerobatic courtship dance. Nightjars have made the North Yorkshire’s forests their key summer stronghold in northern Britain.

The management of both areas creates a key habitat for Nightjars with heath and open woodland clearings. these areas provide an ideal ground-nesting environment, offering shelter and insect life to feed on.

Nightjars migrate to Britain from Africa and return thereafter rearing their chicks. They arrive in the north of England in May and leave in early September.

on these evenings we start the walk approximately one hour before dusk. This gives us the opportunity to search for other birds such as Tree PipitWoodcockTurtle Dove, and Goshawk. On booking, you will receive information on where we will meet and details regarding the Nightjar safari.

The meeting area is usually within 10 miles of Scarborough. But the precise place may change from year to year depending on where is best to see the Nightjars and we dont know this until they arrive back from Africa in May.

    YCN arranged and led our tour to Yorkshire in June 2017. We visited a good variety of habitats and saw a good number of species. The tour leaders were very knowledgeable and good company too. They also did everything they could to ensure that everyone got everything they wanted to from the trip and as a result everyone enjoyed themselves. We plan to use YCN for future trips.
