Birdsall is a village and civil parish now in the Ryedale district of North Yorkshire, England. According to the 2001 census it had a population of 180. The village is about four miles south of Malton.
Birdsall House is the home of Baron Middleton.
Thomas Willoughby (1694–1742), brother of Francis Willoughby, 2nd Baron Middleton, married Elizabeth Sotheby of Birdsall, and their son Henry inherited the barony and Willoughby estates in Nottinghamshire and Warwickshire from his cousin in 1781.
Prior to the nationwide municipal reorganization of 1974, Birdsall was located in Norton Rural District. Historically, it was an ecclesiastical parish in the Buckrose Wapentake. In 1935 the civil parish was expanded by absorbing the neighbouring parish of North Grimston.
