East Yorkshire

Region:

Where the chalk arrow-head of Flamborough's Headland pierces the North Sea, hares dance and ghost-like Barn Owls hunt. Guillemots and Puffins commute from the cliffs, blizzards of Kittiwakes circle and Gannets perform breathtaking dives into waves where porpoises roll.  

The coastline dips gently from Bridlington to Hornsea, where Yorkshire’s largest natural freshwater lake harbours migrant wildfowl and clouds of Little Gulls.

Continuing south, following the migration routes of wading birds, the vast Humber Estuary appears, with the hook of Spurn Head at its mouth. Here migrant Barred Warblers, shrikes and moths make first landfall after their long flights over the North Sea.
