This late winter trip will take us to North Duffield Carrs, Thorganby and Weldrake along the River Derwent, south of York. Target birds for the day will be whooper swan, little owl, pintail duck, lapwing and tree sparrow. We’ll also be scanning and listening for early spring migrants. Price £35 per person including birdwatching guide, transport, refreshments and a list of birds seen and heard on the day (Packed lunch required). Transport Departing at 08:00 from outside Argos at the Moor Allerton Centre on the Leeds outer ring road. What to expect Easy walking on flat ground but paths will be muddy in places. There are 2 hides at North Duffield Carrs but no facilities on site. Plenty of ‘natural’ toilet break opportunities and facilities at nearby York Designer Outlet. Start and end time is at the venue. 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 trick to keeping warm in the winter is by wearing plenty of layers and ensuring you’re waterproof. Wear base layers (thermal vests and leggings), fleeces and walking trousers. Please don’t wear jeans as they will wick moisture from low growing vegetation. Bring a waterproof coat, over-trousers and sturdy, waterproof boots. Scarf, gloves and hat are essential and it’s a good idea to carry spare socks and gloves. 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.
