About North Yorkshire Wildlife Tours

While probably most famous for its iconic sea of purple heather, The North York Moors National Park has it all. Glorious Dales through rolling hills, rugged crags with rocky outcrops and the River Esk starts its meandering journey from gentle trickle at the dainty little Esklets at Westerdale to a fast flowing river in ending its journey in the sea at Whitby harbour where the legendary Captain Cook once sailed from.Truly a area of beauty, there's little wonder its been the location of a TV series and films and is a constant attraction for visitors from all over the world.Some people, like myself are fortunate to have spent my life living and working in it. I have many years experience working as a Photographer in Fashion and Model Photography with published work in magazines and websites ect where the wonderful scenic dales locations have provided many amazing back drops for some stunning fashion shoots.

Always close to my heart was my passion for wildlife photography and just been out and about in the hills and dales of this wonderful part of England, so much so I eventually decided to specialise in this form of photography . I've been fortunate to witness and photograph some amazing wildlife experiences so thought it might be nice to share some of these experiences with others who may not be as fortunate as me to live amongst them all. So North York Moors Wildlife Tours was born. As to be expected in such an area of outstanding beauty and varied habitat the area is rich in wildlife. Not all of the wildfe are resident throught the year so species of wildlife, like the landscape itself are constantly changing. The iconic Red Grouse lives with us through out the year and looks as magnificent in the wintery snow as it does in the famous purple heather.Golden Plover with there distinctive piping calls congregate in quite large flocks and lapwings are in abundance personal favourite of mine, the Curlew comes to the Moors to breed and few chicks are more appealing to watch and photograph than these appealing little birds.Dippers and Wagtails frequent the Streams and Brooks, Meadow Pipits, Skylarks, Wheatears busy about there lives on the Moorland edge while Short Eared Owls can be seen drifting along the moors like ghostly hunters. Tawny owls and Little owls frequent these parts and of late the beautiful little Barn Owl has become far more prolific. Two native species of deer are also quite widespread though out the area. So why not come and see for yourself and what better way to see than with one of our tailor made Safari style tours.


I look forward to meeting you soon.
