Cattersty Gill Nature Reserve

About Cattersty Gill Nature Reserve

Cattersty Gill sits in a secluded valley perched high on the cliffs above Skinningrove.

The nature reserve protects wildflower-rich grassland and offers a landfall for migrant birds which stop to rest and refuel among its hawthorn bushes.
