I've been keeping my eyes open when I've been out and about, and my Dad lives in Kirkby Moorside, and has had a good look around, but we haven't seen any good poppy fields nearby this year. Does anybody know the location of any poppy fields that are anything like near to me i.e. a 30-40 mile radius of Saltburn on the North east coast? Or am I too late now anyway? Thanks

You are not too late as the best colours are only now starting and will still be good well into August.
I cant help on any locations where you live though.
Oh, well that is certainly promising. Thanks. I have never photographed poppies before.
ours are just starting, it will be well into July before they get to their best
Ah, maybe I've been looking a little too early, as it's pretty cool up here, and we tend to be later than much of the country with such things.
we are off up to Farne on Sunday morning, of we see anything promising in the fields en route i will let you know
Oh, wow, have a great time. Thanks.
Poppys are usually found in rape fields,if the farmer has not sprayed for them they emerge in abundance, i would have thought that around Kirbymoorside there should be a few,try the roads towards Helmsley and Giusborough,i was up near Roseberry topping a week or 2 ago and there were some fields almost full of red.

eh? Not sure about the usually
Poppies like any kind of 'disturbed' ground - so everything from a building site to a waste tip to a field of crops (of any sort) is likely to turn up trumps
Yes Barrie your right,i mearly ment that rape fields are a good place to start as they do seem to attract poppys if not attended to by spraying.
Would look nice too.. a splash of red in the yellow
Thanks for that. I'm heading out to Guisborough and Kirkby today, and having another scout around near Pickering. Maybe I'll get luckier today.
If you dont find any today,at the side of Bridlington hospital there is exactly what you want a rape field laden with bright red poppies.Just passed it today.
There is a field with some in near Whiburn up the coast a bit. they were mixed with rape seed .
Always best shot near dusk or sunrise, darker skys, less UV and better saturation
