Flamborough Spring Wildlife Weekend 2019

Flamborough Spring Wildlife weekend

Following the success of our October Migweek, the observatory organised a Spring Wildlife weekend over 4th-6th May. A series of events were designed to engage both the local and visitor community with all things Flamborough wildlife.

Despite challenging weather conditions, the events were a collective success: a bat and moth evening complemented ringing demonstrations, an all day seawatch that included bit-sized introductory sessions for the less-experienced, as well as an excellent and inspiring talk by Keith Clarkson on the wonders of visible migration. In addition, Puffin-watching sessions organised adjacent to the new Seawatch Observatory were attended by over 200 visitors.
