Fairburn Ings

Met up with a group of birdwatching pals for a New Year trip to this RSPB reserve around 25 miles from York. It is very mild at the moment so we had a pleasant walk out with 60 species of bird seen on the reserve. The picture shows the visitor centre with it's wildlife friendly garden.
Ings is an old Yorkshire word of Norse origin and is used to describe a low lying area of water meadow and marsh.
