Migration at North Cave Early spring is the time when we can mop up on our winter birds and also welcome in the newly arrived spring migrants. Anything could turn up at this amazing and expanding Yorkshire Wildlife Trust reserve. On arrival, we’ll take advantage of the The Wild Bird Cafe and eat breakfast while watching birds from the picnic area. We’ll then focus on bird song as we walk along the paths, check out the lagoons for water birds, and look for resident farmland birds such as tree sparrow, corn bunting and skylark. £25 per person including refreshments (Packed lunch required). Transport available Meet me at 8am at the Moor Allerton Centre on the Leeds outer ring road if you’d like transport to the venue. What to expect Easy walking on flat ground but paths will be muddy in places. There are 4 hides on the reserve. Facilities include a mobile cafe and a composting toilet. There are plenty of ‘natural’ toilet opportunities. 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 Don’t be fooled by rising temperatures in the city. It’s just as important to carry lots of layers and ensure you’re waterproof, when birdwatching in open and exposed areas. 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 and it is impossible to dry them out. 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. You’ll also need sunscreen, insect repellent and plenty of water. 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.
