Allerthorpe Common YWT

East Yorkshire (near Pocklington)

This trip was cancelled due to problems with the minibus.

The acid soil here has a variety of habitats supporting a wide range of organisms. Not only is there a wealth of invertebrates but also adders, lizards and palmate newts. Birds include woodlark, woodpeckers and woodcock. With a volunteer guide we may see the nationally rare May Lily. 
A short visit to nearby Calley Heath to look for Shepherd’s Cress, a Yorkshire rarity, may be possible. 

Co-ordinator; Alice Gingell         Walk leader; Jonathan Proud (YWT volunteer)
