Birding spots 1 hour from Sheffield for Tomorrow (1 Viewer)

I will be visiting Sheffield tomorrow and I was wondering which areas within an hour North South or East has lots of good birds at the moment.

Rarities and scarcities within that area would ultimately influence my decision tomorrow but ideally I'd like some good photos. I am travelling from Lancashire.

Places I am considering are:-

St Aidans
Potteric Carr

I may even go to see the Albertross but ideally would like to see other birds too. If I did that would it be worth going Flamborough for sea watching without a scope or even any passerine migrants there?

Potteric Carr is great - went there a few years ago one late summer's day and saw bittern and black tern.
