22nd May 2021 - VC61 Excursion to Flamborough

The VC61 excursion will be held at Flamborough Head on Saturday 22nd May 2021.

Meeting place (Change from Naturalist 1103): We will meet at 10:30 at the Flamborough Lighthouse car park (TA253706). From the B1255 take a right turn to Lighthouse Road (B1259) at Flamborough village (brown sign). The lighthouse car park is 1.8 miles after the turning. This is a Pay & Display car park.

Tea and Reporting Meeting: Given the anticipated restrictions for indoor meetings on the date of the meeting (rule of 6 would still apply) we won’t be having a reporting meeting. Instead, we will organise a Zoom meeting after the event to collate the records. There is a restaurant/cafe and toilet facilities by the Lighthouse Car Park.

The Area: Flamborough Head has many designations - a Special Area of Conservation for vegetated sea cliffs, chalk reefs and caves; a Special Protection Area for its breeding seabirds; a Site of Special Scientific Interest and a Heritage Coast among others. The flora of the headland has a maritime and a calcareous character. Common and Grey Seals, Dolphins and Porpoises can be seen from the cliffs.
