Bempton Cliffs

The RSPB reserve at Bempton Cliffs in east Yorkshire is the largest seabird nesting site on mainland Britain. I did a day's workshop there in late April 2018 with Tesni Ward, and had great fun capturing gannets, razorbills, herring gulls, kittiwakes, guillemots, jackdaws and rock dove/pigeon hybrids on and over the cliffs, plus a great skua at distance over the sea.

Just when we thought we weren't going to be in luck, a couple of puffins were spotted on the cliff.

Later in the day the sun sinks behind the east-facing cliffs to highlight some of the nesting sites, and I also tried some intentional camera movement images of the gannets in those positions.

Nearer the visitor centre we had excellent sightings of the local tree sparrows, and a long-range meadow pipit.
