Home to some of Britain's most iconic wildlife, East Yorkshire is the natural destination for any wildlife lover. With a huge array of Springwatch worthy wildlife encounters to choose from, when will you discover Yorkshire's wild side?
Seabirds and Shoreline Treasures
Between April and July, Bempton Cliffs and Flamborough Cliffs come alive with the sights, sounds and smells of over 250,000 seabirds.
Booming Bitterns and awesome Avocets
Bitterns, bearded tits and marsh harriers all make their homes in the reedbeds at Blacktoft Sands, alongside the resident conservation grazing Konik ponies.
Nestled in the heart of the countryside, Tophill Low is a haven for otters, water voles, kingfishers and barn owls. Take a picnic and while away the day exploring the 13 wildlife viewing hides which offer great views over the lakes or tread your path amongst orchid meadows and woodland glades.
On top of the Wold
Having successfully colonised the Yorkshire Wolds, red kites are a regular sight on the skyline. Underfoot, the chalky soil is perfect for wilflower displays, at their most impressive in June and July.
With staggering numbers of birds stopping off on their annual migration each spring and autumn, and overwintering mega flocks of waders, Spurn really is a 'must visit' for any wildlife lover.
