YWT North Cave Wetlands - a jack snipe has been seen; they feed on worms, snails and insects in the winter in the UK, before heading back to Russia to breed in the spring.
Kilnsea Wetlands - Roesel’s bush cricket seen and heard calling from the long grass by the ditches. Until the early 20th century, Roesel’s Bush-cricket was only found on the south-east coast. Recent years have seen a rapid expansion in its range, particularly helped by roadside rough grassland and scrub providing a 'corridor' for it to travel along.
