It was a busy day and visitors who joined the first of our wildlife walks on the Yorkshire Wolds reported some great sightings.
Experienced naturalist Michael Flowers, who leads these guided walks for me, took some great photographs and so for today I thought I would invite him to be my guest-blogger.
Please note Michael's next guided walks are on July 5th. The first is to Allerthorpe Common to look for adders at 10am, book by clicking here, and the second is to Wharram Percy again at 1.30pm, book by clicking here.
Below is Michael's account of the wildlife spotted on our opening day.
