East Yorkshire

The Yorkshire coast in autumn is a thrilling experience for birders, as thousands of migrants pass through on their southward journey. You never know what might turn up and we hope for something unusual amongst the hundreds of common migrants - or a real rarity even, as many great finds have occurred at this time of year. We shall enjoy a ringing demonstration from the Observatory at Spurn and visit other coastal migration hotspots, plus but some fabulous wetlands and other habitats on this single centre holiday with minibus transport.
