Andrew Ditton admits his ignorance of all things feathered has prevented him from visiting RSPB reserves on more than one occasion. To put things right he attended a 90-minute guided walk at Bempton Cliffs where he was dazzled by fascinating facts and entranced by puffins and gannets.

You don’t need to be an expert
I have allowed my ignorance of all things feathered to prevent me from visiting RSPB reserves on more than one occasion. What would be the point in going if I didn’t know what I was looking at? How would I even know the best times of the year to go?
It turns out you only have to look at the RSPB’s website to find:
- reserves near to where you're staying.
- a synopsis of what kinds of bird frequent an area.
- what different times certain birds visit.
Being a complete bird spotting beginner, I did my research and booked myself onto a guided walk at RSPB Bempton Cliffs.
