What could be better than a visit to Spurn and Kilnsea during early spring? Perhaps a visit to Spurn and Kilnsea preceded by a bacon butty in Patrington? Birding heaven. After our stop-off for breakfast we’ll check the lagoons, fields and hedgerows around Kilnsea Wetlands for migrating waders and passerines; look at the wonderful Spurn Bird Observatory facilities, 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. There may also be time to look at the new Yorkshire Wildlife Trust visitor centre. Fingers crossed for perfect migration weather conditions. Price £65 including a full day of guided birding, travel, refreshments and a list of birds seen and heard on the day. Breakfast not included in the price. Please also bring a packed lunch and your Yorkshire Wildlife Trust membership cards if you have them. Transport Meet me at 07:50 outside Argos/Habitat 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. Time advertised is time we leave Leeds and time the day finishes at Spurn. 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.
