Bird Watching

The tranquil pursuit of bird watching or 'Twitching' can be enjoyed in the Yorkshire Dales, an area that boasts a vast and varied collection of local birds. Often bird watching is incorporated into walking, and these two pursuits are so well connected that some publishers now offer books detailing bird watching walks in the Yorkshire Dales. Birds of prey can be spotted in this area including the Peregrine Falcon and the Kestrel, a bird made famous through the Sheffield based book ‘Kes'. A bird, which regularly evades bird watchers in the Dales, is the Goshawk, best of luck searching!
