The Yorkshire Dales is an enchantingly beautiful area in the heart of northern England. It is a land of limestone pavements and scars, fast-flowing rivers and dramatic waterfalls, lonely heather moors and picturesque villages and valleys. But as well as its wonderful landscapes, the Dales is also a special place for many bird species, and these twin assets are combined in this excellent new book.
Each of these well designed walks is set in gorgeous countryside where there is also every chance of seeing some of the birds which abounds in the area. Both novice and experienced birders can enjoy the dippers at Aysgarth, or great spotted woodpeckers in Grass Woods, as well as the rarer black grouse, wood warbler, pied flycatcher and nightjar, to name but a few. With helpful guide maps, this book will help walkers of all abilities get the best out of this stunning National Park and its varied bird population.
