2019 Yorkshire Puffin Festival
For the second year running, Flamborough Bird Observatory helped Yorkshire Wildlife Trust ensure this weekend event was a great success. Based on the cliff top adjacent to our new Seawatch Observatory, we set up telescopes to show visitors frame-filling views of breeding Puffins sat outside their burrows.
Over the course of two three-hour sessions on 15th/16th June, we managed to show 260 visitors their first ever telescope views of the birds. In addition, 12 Grey Seals gave great views loafing on the reefs below the cliffs, whilst myriad breeding seabirds were augmented by passing Sandwich Terns.
