Default Yorkshire

We are creating the definitive list of top birding sites in UK and Ireland.

Here are the nominations for Yorkshire.

North Yorkshire = TBA
East Riding = Flamborough Head
West Yorkshire = Fairburn Ings
South Yorkshire = TBA
Humberside = TBA

NB. Should Humberside be here?

Please feel free to post your comments or counter proposals.

Thanks. As long as people looking for local Hull patches know to look in East Riding, then that will work.

Thanks for the clarification.

Woooohoooo, my home county! West Yorkshire, I would agree that Fairburn Ings is pretty much the best place to go for some of the best birding you can get round here.

For South Yorkshire Potteric Carr just off the M18 near Doncaster is a great birding site. Go to Potteric Carr Nature Reserve: Home Page for more info.
