Bishop Wood

  near Selby

This trip was cancelled due to severe weather warnings.

This is ancient woodland with wide rides and plenty of botanical interest. It lies to the east of the village of Biggin and has not previously been visited by BEES group. It is one of only two sites in Yorkshire where the nationally rare day-flying Argent & Sable Moth can be seen. The plan is to park at Park Nook CP & explore the north eastern section of the woodland.
Birdlife is said to include Crossbills which favour the coniferous plantations. The terrain is flat & walking is therefore easy. Strong footwear is advisable as there are a few short muddy sections. 
There are toilet facilities at Ferrybridge Service Station
