YWT Pulfin Bog - 11 August 2013

A long, but enjoyable walk up the River Hull from the pub at Tickton, towards the wetland of Pulfin Bog. The site lies next to the large High Eske lake which held an unseasonal Goldeneye, many Tufted Duck, a few Great Crested Grebes and two Common Sandpipers. Pulfin itself is a little tricky to access as there are not really any marked footpaths, apart from the circular path around the lake which runs down the side of the nature reserve. There is a couple of gates allowing access to the Bog though it is not too clear where you walk. Donning  a pair of wellies would enable you to explore the site more freely though the vast reedbeds seem pretty much impenetrable! Lots of dragon and damselflies around including some impressive Brown and Southern Hawkers. No Hobbies noted which was unusual as they are frequently seen round here.
