Novice but enthusiastic
Hi there everyone.
As someone relatively new to birding, I'm always looking to expand my choice of spots to visit in pursuit of spotting wildlife.
Other than RSPB reserves around Yorkshire, where do you go for some good action?
Let’s face it; all the birdlife doesn’t just hang out at the RSPB reserves!
I'm based on the Wakefield / Huddersfield border, but will travel anywhere in God's own county. I can take my passport if you think I need to venture further :eek!:

Always more to learn
I visit c30 different East Yorkshire venues per year with my classes, which is good for variety, but my favourite probably changes depending on the time of year. Spurn can be brilliant in late August through to late October, but I wouldn't visit in Jan or Feb.
