Bird Watching

The North York Moors provides the perfect location to pursue bird watching. The moors are protected as an official National Park ensuring that the bird habitats are left largely undisturbed by human intervention. There are plenty of sanctuaries and permanent hides for spotters to make use of and enthusiasts can take part in organised bird watching walks. Birds are taken very seriously in this region, a detailed map of bird watching locations is published online by the York Ornithological Club and Birdline Northeast provides a 24-hour answer phone service providing the latest news on bird movements in the region (except protected species).
