Event Details

Join our expert ornithologist Jack Ashton-Booth for this guided walk through the stunning Yorkshire Wolds countryside to spot winter migrant birds and then enjoy paintings by acclaimed artist Robert E Fuller at his gallery in Thixendale.

Don't miss this opportunity to learn from a truly informative guide. Jack Ashton-Booth will share his depth of knowledge as he helps you search for birds that have left northern Europe to spend their winter here. He will describe to you the journey these birds have undergone to reach our shores and when to look out for them. Among the birds you may see are fieldfares and brilliantly-coloured redstarts.

About Jack Ashton-Booth: An experienced ornithologist and bird of prey specialist, Jack has worked on reserach projects all over the world monitoring migration patterns. He is now based at the gallery where he readily shares his expertise with visitors.

What one visitor said after attending Jack's walks:

"It was a beautiful September morning, and we were being lead around the wolds by Jack, an amazing ornithologist who seemed to see every speck in the sky and identify what it was. Just to have time to listen to the birds on a glorious Sunday morning with an expert on hand was a rare treat. "5startraveller TripAdvisor

Duration: Two hours

Level: This walk is not suitable for children under the age of 13. The walk will involve a short climb and requires a medium level of fitness. Please

Where to meet: This walk will begin and end at the  Robert Fuller Gallery where you well get the opportunity to browse the paintings. Please report your arrival at the desk on arrival.

What to wear:  Please wear appropriate, sturdy footwear and clothing to suit the weather – windproof jacket, fleece etc. It can get very cold on the Wolds at this time of year so please don't underestimate how many layers you will need. Bring a hat and gloves too and a flask containing a warm drink is a good idea! Also bring binoculars if you have them.
