With great pleasure I received a few months ago an invitation to participate in this fantastic event organized by Migration Festival team (Spurn Bird Observatory Trust, Westmere Farm, Birding Frontiers and Yorkshire Wildlife Trust). I have visited Spurn only one before, in late August 2008, and enjoyed birding there very much. I clearly remember the tens of thousands of shorebirds on the Humber:
Had a bumper seawatch one afternoon with some super-sharp local birders - Sabine's Gull, Long-tailed Skua, Roseate Terns etc.
I am looking forward to the weekend very much - surely both the birds and the people will make it a superb experience. I am giving a talk on Saturday night but the main action is during the day.
Looking forward to meet up with old friends and of course meet lots of new friends.
See you there!
