YORKSHIRE Wildlife Trust – which runs Low Wood nature reserve at Riddlesden – has published a new guidebook.

The booklet spotlights some of the best locations across the region for wildlife watching.

It lists more than 90 nature reserves throughout Yorkshire and includes information on each such as accessibility, birds and other creatures to look out for, fungi and flowers, and seasonal walking routes.

Rachael Bice, for Yorkshire Wildlife Trust, says: "We are living in a time of change.

"Substantial challenges face us today and into the future, and the beauty of nature and the smallest of wildlife wonders can help to lift our hearts day to day as well as providing restorative escapes when we need them.

"We know that even the smallest of actions when taken by many people make a big difference for our wildlife.

"It's our hope that the new guide will inspire people to discover the wildlife on their doorstep, so they feel connected and encouraged to support our work across Yorkshire."

Discover Yorkshire’s Wildlife retails at £14.99.

Copies can be obtained from good book stores and online from Yorkshire Wildlife Trust, at ywtshop.org.uk/product-category/reading/reserve-guides.
