Birding Discovery Day – Forest And River Birds 2020

The Great Yorkshire Forest is one of the few areas of large landscapes in England we can truly call a forest. Habitat networks link the landscape over 30 miles to the extent between Scarborough and Sutton Bank in the west. The area is a complex mosaic of ancient woodland, semi-natural woodland, mixed woodland, and commercial forest, all set within the beautiful North York Moors National Park. There are four main forest areas; Broxa, Langdale, Dalby, and Cropton. Within and around the edges of the forest are many beautiful and historic North Yorkshire villages.

Northern Goshawk, European Honey Buzzard, Common Crossbill, European Nightjar, European Turtle Dove, Tree Pipit, Common Redstart, Pied Flycatcher, Spotted Flycatcher, Dipper, Kingfisher, Grey Wagtail

    Richard Baines is everything you could want in a wildlife guide: knowledgeable, passionate, considerate and super-helpful. His deep understanding of ecology added greatly to our understanding of the birds, flowers and insects we were seeing. He made every effort to insure that we all saw everything and increased our own knowledge.

    This was a superb few hours spent in a forest on the North Yorks moors where the nightjars appeared right on cue. Richard's knowledge shone through as did his ability to make everyone feel comfortable whether new to the hobby or an old hand. Highly recommended.

    I have used YCN on several occasions spanning several years Richard Baines is a consummate professional... not only knowledgeable about birds, wildlife, crucial local knowledge but bending over backwards to match his skills to the group regardless of their skill - encouraging, interested and interesting and never patronising
