Spurn Wildlife 2016 Review

  • Tue 20th Jun, 2017

Spurn has a special place in my birding heart. In the 1980’s I used to travel down with my father and camp at Sandy Beaches, I pitched my tent in a spot which is now literally a sandy beach!

A mainly dry and increasingly warm month brought many naturalists and birders out into the field leading to some great sightings. Good weather suited many emerging butterflies from Duke of Burgundy to Brown Argus. Sighting of the month though was much bigger an impressive Black-browed Albatross!

Wildlife Sightings - April 2017

  • Tue 9th May, 2017

Warm southerly winds and sunshine at the start of the month brought out the best of our spring butterflies and moths, and an early surge of migrant birds. But just as we became used to basking in the sun, a colder airflow towards the end of the month brought a rush of Arctic waders and terns.
