Fasten your seatbelts! Migration never stops at this east coast hotspot - and neither does Mark in his pursuit of its wonders. Let him take you on a whistlestop tour through four seasons of high drama at his beloved Filey Bird Observatory. Mark has shone the spotlight on this idyllic corner of the east coast through his very popular series of articles in Birdwatch magazine and Birdguides, his radio and television contributions (including co-presenting recent features from Filey with Chris Packham and for BBC Springwatch with Michaela Strachan) and his ongoing work celebrating his remarkable adventures there.
