Mike Dilger, a familiar face to our screens making regular appearances as a wildlife reporter for the BBC One Show and Inside Out, along with presenting natural history programmes such as Urban Jungle, will be present at the 2014 Spurn Migration Festival.

Mike has just recently accepted the position of Patron at the Spurn Bird Observatory and shall be welcoming festival ticket holders during his informative evening lecture at Westmere Farm on Saturday and accompanying several guided walks throughout the weekend.

Mike said: ‘I’m really excited about being able to join the Spurn Migration Festival this year. As a passionate naturalist I have birded in a huge range of countries, but Spurn’s epic peninsula during the autumn bird migration is spectacular and certainly something every naturalist should witness for themselves.

Scarce species such as Balearic, Manx and Sooty Shearwaters along with Red-Backed Shrike, Wryneck and Common Rosefinch were all seen at last years festival, so I’m looking forward to see what this year will have in store for us. But if none of those species ring any bells don’t worry, the festival caters for all abilities and provides the perfect place to learn.’

The Spurn Migration festival runs from the 5th - 7th September. Tickets will be going on sale on the 28th April and the prices are as follows: £14 for a day ticket, £21 for the weekend ticket and £8 for the evening lecture with delicious hog roast.
The event is hosted by Spurn Bird Observatory and Yorkshire Wildlife Trust in partnership with Birding Frontiers and Westmere Farm for further information visit
