About this book

This guide to England’s most extensive county is the biggest in the Best Birdwatching Sites series at 340 pages. No fewer than 88 sites are assessed, with more than 120 detailed maps ensuring that readers get all the information they need.

Main author Neil Glenn, who was highly-praised when his guide to Norfolk’s top birding areas was published in 2002, brings the same birding knowledge to a wide range of Yorkshire sites. As one reviewer put it; “Neil’s work is chatty, accessible, but always to the point – it is genuinely like having an expert guide to hand to talk you through some of the more daunting aspects of birdwatching [...]”.

John Miles, who wrote the Best Birdwatching Sites: Solway guide to Cumbria and Dumfries & Galloway covered 14 sites, including Dalby Forest, Ingleborough and Wykeham Lakes. Together, the authors have created the most up-to-date guide to Yorkshire birding sites.

The new volume naturally gives in-depth coverage of famous coastal locations such as Spurn Point, Flamborough and Filey Brigg, but, as with other books in the series, the authors have sought out less well-known sites such as Blacka Moor, Rother Valley Country Park and Paull Holme Strays to assess their birding potential.
