Birding Discovery Day - Flamborough Headland Autumn Migration Special 2024

Autumn Migration Special 2024 - Flamborough Headland

Birding Discovery Day - Flamborough Headland Autumn Migration Special 2024

Autumn Migration Special 2024 - Flamborough Headland

Join us on our one-day bespoke migration specials, dedicated specifically to making the most of bird migration on the hallowed Yorkshire coast!

These unique adventures are limited to just five places per tour, ensuring you receive unrivalled attention and guiding from our expert on the ground. We will use our famous local knowledge and contacts to maximise the best of east coast migration on the day, and we'll provide you with an 'insider's insight' into the magic and mystery of this most incredible phenomenon throughout! Suitable for any ability level (although a basic fascination with bird migration is preferable!), we guarantee various special migratory species, and who's to say we won't find the big one on the day? 

Key birds: We'll read the weather conditions to make sure of the best possible returns, which may include:

On the land - thrushes, finches, chats, warblers and birds of prey;

Over the sea - skuas, shearwaters, ducks, terns, grebes, geese and divers;

On the coast - various seabirds and shorebirds; at local wetlands - waders, ducks, geese, swans and much more.

We'll visit the most productive habitats and locations and it may well be a combination of several (or even all!) the above.... expect to learn a lot, first hand and in the thick of it! Please note: transport is not provided on this day tour. All sites will be in close proximity to the meeting point to be arranged.

What you can expect on one of our Birding Discovery Days 2024:

  • A small group creates constant, great opportunities to interact with your guide
  • Professional, local expert guide with a lifetime of birding knowledge in Yorkshire
  • A fun-packed day; exciting locations, tuition, opportunities for photography and of course great birds!

Sandy Frew

Flamborough Headland

Had a fabulous day with Mark last Friday at Flamborough. Saw Siberian Chiffchaff and Dusky Warbler, both first timers for me. I can thoroughly recommend Mark’s Yorkshire Coast Nature trips, whether you are a keen birder or don’t know a sparrow from an owl you’ll still have a great day. He has an encyclopaedic knowledge of all things birding, he imparts it with passion, enthusiasm and humour. Neither myself nor my wife are in the first full flush of youth yet were able to cope with the pace of the day and will definitely book more. Sandy Frew
