This amazing Yorkshire Water reserve in the Yorkshire Wolds is a haven for winter wildfowl, barn owl, kingfisher and wading birds. Otter and water vole have also been seen regularly on the reserve. Work through a host of birds on the man-made ‘O’ and ‘D’ reservoirs via a range of hides and screens and explore the surrounding woodland and lagoons close to the River Hull. Willow and marsh tit are regulars here and winter thrush flocks are usually seen. Barn owls hunt around the site using the woodland rides and clearings.

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.
