Hi Mike
We watch from one of our Bradford Ornithological Group reserves. Its a private site for permit carrying members only. So if you are interested and can get up early, you first need to come to one of our Group meetings to get your paperwork in place. The Bradford Ornithological Group website will have details of meeting venue and times. However the season is just about finished now for another year so you have plenty of time!
