More chances to enjoy the East Riding countryside

Late October will see more events organised by East Riding of Yorkshire Council’s countryside access team, designed to make the most of the stunning countryside in the area.

An Autumn Migration Birdwatch will take place at South Landing Local Nature Reserve at Flamborough on Sunday, 20 October from 9.30 am – 11.30 am , led by a local birdwatching guide with Yorkshire Coast Nature.

Flamborough Headland is one of the best places in the UK to experience bird migration, as Scandinavian migrant birds cross the North Sea for berries and milder winters. A telescope will be available, but participants should bring their own binoculars.

The event will include an easy walk of up to two miles.  Booking is essential, and the event costs £3.50 for adults; £2.50 for adults over 60 and children/young people; and £9 for a family ticket (two adults and two children).

Beverley Parks Local Nature Reserve (off Long Lane, Beverley) will host an Introduction to Bushcraft on Saturday, 26 October from 10am – 12.30pm. This will be a chance to learn some of the basic skills required to survive and thrive in the wilderness. Participants will look at building an improvised Tarp shelter and how to light a fire. They will also discover how to improve their awareness of the woodland and environment through tracking, natural navigation and foraging.

Booking is essential, and the event costs £3.50 for adults; £2.50 for adults over 60 and children/young people; and £9 for a family ticket (two adults and two children).

The October programme will finish with a half term Kids go Wild event on Tuesday, 29 October – Hibernation Dens will be at Humber Bridge Country Park Local Nature Reserve from 10am -12 noon and from 1.30pm – 3.30pm.

This will be an opportunity to help wildlife by building hibernation homes in the woods for insects, amphibians and small mammals. The event is suitable for children, accompanied by adults.

Meet at Hessle Foreshore entrance, and park along Hessle Foreshore.  Booking is essential; tickets cost £2.50 for children, and accompanying adults go free.

Several events are now sold out, but there are still some tickets left for a range of very different events.

Rhik Samadder, writer and Guardian columnist, on Friday, 18 October at 3.30pm in the beautiful setting of Beverley Art Gallery:  “I Never Said I Loved You” -  a memoir discussing depression and understanding your own mental health. Rhik is a very interesting, articulate and amusing speaker, and the book should appeal to readers of books by Matt Haig, and anybody who enjoys a great memoir.

The event will be hosted by local author Louise Beech whose book ‘Call Me Star Girl’ recently won Book of the Year in the Big Book Awards 2019.

This will be a stand-up comedy show for children over six, their parents, and anyone who likes comedy without the rude words. Booking is strongly recommended – this is likely to sell out soon!
