On this trip we will head off to the famous raptor viewpoint in Wykeham Forest to watch for displaying goshawk at the start of the breeding season. We’ll also look here for singing crossbill. In the afternoon we’ll look for newly arrived spring migrants along the east coast and perhaps some late winter visitors on their way home to Scandinavia. Venue to be decided depending on weather. Price Price for the session is £65 which includes a full day of guided birding, transport, refreshments and a list of birds seen and heard on the day. A packed lunch is required. Transport available Meet me at 08:00 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. Facilities are available at nearby villages. Times shown are for setting off from Leeds and the end of the birdwatching session on the east coast. Please add travel time back to Leeds. 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 You will need to wear base layers (thermal vests and leggings) depending on the weather. Bring a fleece 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, hat and it’s a good idea to bring extra gloves and socks.
