North Cave Wetlands is a bird reserve of national importance run by the Yorkshire Wildlife Trust. It’s a wonderful place and one that I’ve visited before and today I decided to combine another visit with a walk in the area

I parked by All Saints Church in North Cave and walked out of the village through the grounds of Hotham Hall into the attractive village of Hotham

After walking along a quiet lane and a short section of road, I entered the Wetlands. I took the path round the perimeter and spend some time in a couple of the hides, marvelling at the huge variety of birdlife. It was a special thrill to see several avocets. I wished I’d had more time to spare as I’d only scraped the surface, but I’ll be back another time for more
