North Cave Wetlands

Sunday 19th October
 With poor weather forecast for the Pennines & North West we decided to head East for the day to a new location for us the YWT Reserve , North Cave Wetlands.This lies South of Beverley in East Yorkshire, we had plenty of sunshine & a start temperature of 15.5°C on our arrival.There were
three hides to view from with another closed with development near by.There were good numbers of birds here with Teal being the most numerous, & good to see a Curlew, on approach to one hide a Snipe flew across in front of us this looked great with the sun on it.After spending time in the hides it was time for lunch from the small cafe before calling in at Blacktoft Sands on the way home,that report to follow later.
