What could be better than a visit to Spurn and Kilnsea during autumn migration time? Perhaps a visit to Spurn and Kilnsea preceded by a bacon butty in Patrington? Birding heaven. We’ll check the lagoons, fields and hedgerows around Kilnsea Wetlands for migrating waders and passerines; spend some time sea-watching to look for red-throated diver and scoter; and check out the mudflats on the Humber estuary for wader flocks, shelduck and brent geese. Fingers crossed for perfect migration weather conditions. If there’s time we may visit the Yorkshire Wildlife Trust visitor centre. Departure time is between 16:30 and 17:00. Price £65 including refreshments. Transport available Meet me at 08:00 at the Moor Allerton Centre on the Leeds outer ring road. What to expect Mostly easy walking on flat ground but footpaths may be uneven and muddy. Note for beginners If you’re struggling to see birds through your binoculars, you’ll learn quickly how to use them with speed and accuracy and discover some useful techniques for watching birds in the field. 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 The Spurn peninsula is an exposed stretch of land between the North Sea and the Humber estuary. Be prepared for it to feel cold. Bring layers and waterproof outer clothing including coat, over-trousers and sturdy waterproof boots. Please don’t wear jeans as they will wick moisture from low growing vegetation. Bring a scarf and gloves as well as water, sunscreen and insect repellent. Join me on more trips and learn about each bird’s story whether it migrates or stays in the UK the time of year when it can be seen the types of habitats preferred by different species how birds adapt to their environment.
