Big thank you to all at Potteric Carr Yorkshire Wildlife Trust Reserve
We had a wonderful day at Potteric Carr Yorkshire Wildlife Trust Reserve, many thanks to all the staff and volunteers for making us so welcome and doing everything possible to make the day a great success!
Our talk on The Biggest Twitch went down very well in the morning, with a very lively question and answer session to follow. Always a good sign that the audience enjoyed it when they have so many questions about the adventure.
A great lunch was enjoyed in the reserve cafe, lovely to see local families enjoying the reserve and make great use of all the facilities here.
Full of hot food we headed out on to the reserve, with volunteers Paul and Derek, to take a guided walk to some of the many hides.
No doubting the highlight of the walk, stunning views of a Kingfisher
The reserve has lots to offer the visitor, long walks, loads of birds, great hides, photographic opportunities, events and of course the excellent cafe! So time you went along and gave Potteric Carr YWT reserve a go, you won't be dissapointed.
We will certainly be heading back as soon as we can, loads more of the reserve we did not have time to explore, see you there?
In case you missed it do take a look at Barry Nightingales account of his time with us in North Wales earlier in the year, its a great write up, thanks Barry!
We are heading off to Ecuador for two weeks so not sure if we will be able to do many updates on the blog but we will do our best! One thing for sure we will return with some great stories and pictures to share with you soon.
Birders in the UK should keep a look for Waxwings! They are coming...
