Event description

Description

This class takes us to two Yorkshire Wildlife Trust reserves near Ripon and Boroughbridge, Staveley and Ripon Wetlands. In the winter we'll be searching for water rail, barn owl and starlings as well as watching water birds and winter thrushes. Otter is also seen at Staveley on a regular basis. The order of the day and meeting arrangements will be decided based on observed starling activity. Free refreshments and a bird list are available at the end of the walk.

Transport and meeting arrangements

Booking essential to ensure groups are small and to give a better birdwatching experience.

Book your place in my minibus which leaves at 08:00 at the Moor Allerton Centre on the Leeds outer ring road if you'd like transport to the venue otherwise meeting arrangements will be decided later depending on bird activity.

More information will be provided by email by the organiser before the event.
