This is Start Birding’s first visit to Burton Riggs Nature Reserve between Scarborough and Filey. Explore the lagoons, farmland and woodland for newly arrived spring migrants and perhaps some late winter visitors on their way home to Scandinavia. In the afternoon, either Filey or the raptor viewpoint in Wykeham Forest will be the venue depending on bird news, weather and recent performance of birds. You can also learn about seabirds at this year’s Bempton Above and Below trip (including diving gannets) on Sunday 22nd July and the Bempton Above and Below trip (including Skuas and Shearwaters) trip on Saturday 15th September.

You’ll also learn how to identify birds by their songs and calls.Please don’t buy binoculars especially for the trip as these can be provided on request. You’ll be able to get advice about binoculars, what to buy and the best places to make a purchase. What to wear You may need to wear base layers (thermal vests and leggings) depending on the weather.
