Spurn Migration Festival - a few faces!

Spurn was recently the venue of the UK's first ever migration festival organised by
the Spurn Bird Observatory, Yorkshire Wildlife Trust, Birding Frontiers and
Westmere Farm.
The event was a huge success with guided migrant walks, seawatching, visible migration
watches and ringing demonstrations.
A full and interesting lecture programme complimented the outdoor daytime activities.
