About this book

Please note (11/07/2014): A reader pointed out that the map on page 229 has accidentally been duplicated on page 214. The publisher confirmed that this printing error unfortunately has affected the whole print run.

This is a detailed account of over 100 of the best birdwatching sites in the great county on Yorkshire. The sites range from Spurn Point in the south-east, northwards along the coast to Flamborough Head and the Teesestuary and inland along the Pennine Chain with its many reservoirs and the high barren moorlands to the rolling hills of the North York moors. Every site is described with directions for access and distances for travel as well as lists of all species to be found at the various seasons.

" [...] a well-established and successful series [...] "
- British Ornithologists' Union (2009)
