In the Picture with JoshFri 26th May 2023
At this time of year there is a lot to see in East Yorkshire. I always enjoy an early morning walk along the River Hull.
As well as the beautiful morning light, there is a huge variety of wildlife to see such as Barn Owls, Roe Deer and maybe even an Otter if you’re lucky.
You can normally hear the chirp of a Kingfisher flying past or the sounds of a Tawny Owl in the trees. For a better chance of getting some great close ups I also enjoy visiting Tophill Low Nature reserve. Located on the River Hull between Beverley and Driffield there is a range of hides for bird watching and photography.
Out towards the coast at RSPB Bempton Cliffs, you’ll be able to watch the Gannets collecting nesting material from the cliff tops and see the Puffins and other sea birds gliding on the breeze as they come in to land.
If the wind is blowing from the right direction, they will hover right in front of you, making them much easier to photograph!
In the Picture with Josh With any luck, Albie, the Black-Browed Albatross may also return for another year. The landscapes of East Yorkshire and the Wolds also provide plenty of photo opportunities this time of year. The countless yellow fields of Rapeseed break up the green landscape and look stunning in the sunlight.
The trees are also starting to blossom, and a great place to see them is in Huggate where one of the walks intersects the driveway of Northfield Lodge. The drive is lined with a tunnel of Cherry trees.
