Bempton



Auks on the cliffs

It's raining out at sea

Went to the East Riding of Yorkshire for a couple of days with my Mum. The main purpose was for family history research (which you can read about here if you have the inclination) but it would have been silly not to make a brief visit to Bempton while we were in the area.

It was a cold, windy evening and I didn't have any binoculars with me, but there were still plenty of birds around. Gannets cruised past and the cliff ledges were filled with Guillemots and Razorbills hanging onto them, while Kittiwakes and Fulmars flew by.

Can't wait to go back in about a month's time when the birds have young and it's really exciting.
