RE: Wykeham Forest Raptor Viewpoint - North Yorks


Well known & publicised so I'm not giving away any secrets!

http://www.forestry.gov.uk/website/WildWoods.nsf/LUWebDocsByKey/EnglandNorthYorkshireNoForestWykehamForestRaptorViewpoint

We arrived 9:15 expecting activity from 10:30ish, and stayed to 13:15.

Like any similar site you can spend hours there without success, so I'd say we were lucky - but it was a planned assault!

Up to 3 have been seen - our first bird was probably not one of the pair that showed well. Very easy to get to, 1 hour 45 from Birch Services to being sat on one of the benches.

Visited this site for the first time yesterday with Mike R and Ian.

Superb site, Turtle Dove calling, lots of Crossbill, 3 - 5 Common Buzzard but the jewel, two Honey Buzzard displaying for about 1- 15 minutes, with plenty of wing-clapping.

Then on to Bempton for the usual sea-birds at point blank range as usual - and 2 Arctic Skua offshore.

Finished off with fish & chips at Inghams in Filey - a great day out.
