Yorkshire Nature Triangle

Last year I was commissioned by the Yorkshire Wildlife Trust to make a short film for the Yorkshire Nature Triangle. Established in 2010 the Nature Triangle is a series of reserves in the counties of North Yorkshire and the East Riding of Yorkshire, in the north of England, UK. It is bounded by the east coast from Filey Brigg in the north all the way down past Bridlington, Hornsea and Withernsea to the 3.5 mile narrow peninsula at Spurn Point — then by North Cave, the Yorkshire Wolds and the River Hull catchment to the west — and by the Humber tidal estuary to the south.

The Yorkshire Nature Triangle is one of the UK’s best-kept wildlife secrets. Offering many of the iconic species and landscapes available elsewhere in the UK, East Yorkshire also provides many opportunities that cannot be experienced anywhere else including…

  • The UK’s largest mainland colony of gannets
  • The most easily viewable mainland colony of puffins in the country
  • The most northerly chalk downland streams in the country
  • Some of the most northerly breeding avocets in the country
  • Iconic birds of prey including red kites,marsh harriers and hen harriers
  • Two of Britain’s top bird migration hotspots – Flamborough and Spurn
  • Internationally important wetlands home to thousands of ducks and wading birds
  • Some of the most popular ‘must see’ species for wildlife watchers including otters, bittern, bearded tits and marine mammals such as seals, porpoises and occasional whales and dolphins
