WATCH OUT FOR THREE HANDY NEW OUTDOOR GUIDES TO MAKE THE MOST OF EAST YORKSHIRE THIS WINTER!

Wrap up warm, pull on your walking boots and enjoy our beautiful Yorkshire Nature Triangle.

 Guides for visiting the coast, Wolds and Humber are packed with fun, low cost suggestions. They include walks on the Yorkshire Wolds Way to watch red kites, strolls along cliff-tops to spot seal and short eared owls and wildlife watching from cosy, heated hides.

The Yorkshire Triangle runs along the stunning coastline from Filey to Spurn Point via Flamborough’s dramatic headland; along the Humber Estuary to the Lower Derwent Valley and back to the coast via the Yorkshire Wolds. The Yorkshire Wold’s Way is one of the UK’s 16 National Trails where walkers can enjoy historic and scenic landscapes, with stunning views across the Vale of York. It has several circular walks along it, too!

Helen Jones, Nature Tourism Manager at Yorkshire Wildlife Trust said; “East Yorkshire is still one of the UK’s best kept wildlife secrets. With dramatic coastline, rolling hills and a mighty estuary, it features a vast array of amazing places to watch wildlife or take a stroll all year round. We’ve created these concise and colourful guides, so people can easily discover more places and be inspired to stay longer in the area or return to experience the wonders of another season - there’s something for all ages and ability. It might be cold outside but winter is still a wonderful time to enjoy the very best of East Yorkshire’s wildlife and wild places.”

Very local to Beverley are:

• Yorkshire Water’s Tophill Low reserve, which is open all year for people to enjoy over 50 different species from a cosy hide complete with log burner and hot drinks counter. It’s one of East Yorkshire’s only places to watch spectacular starling murmurations.

• Yorkshire Wildlife Trust’s North Cave Wetlands, which is a former quarry and winter wildfowl wonder - all viewable from several accessible hides and platforms.

For bracing winter sea-air visit:

• Bridlington where you can venture onto the beach in search of fossils.

• Filey Bay, where the five miles of golden sands were awarded The Times Beach of the Year 2018, or nearby Hunmanby Gap. 

• Hornsea which marks the eastern end of the Trans Pennine Trail.

• Flamborough Cliffs where you can spot seals and harbour porpoises causing a splash.

• Yorkshire Wildlife Trust’s new Discovery Centre at Spurn for stunning views from picture windows across the point and Humber Estuary. Wrap up and venture to the newly-renovated lighthouse - the tallest in Northern England - for 360-degree views throughout the year. Spurn Safaris on the amazing Unimog run throughout the year - otherwise it’s a very pleasant 7-mile walk!

The guides have been published by the Yorkshire Wildlife Trust-led Nature Triangle project to encourage more visitors to the area throughout the year. They can be downloaded at: www.yorkshirenaturetriangle.org.uk/wild-days-out
