Spring Returns to RSPB Bempton Cliffs

  Well you wait for ages for one and then two turn up straight after each other.My blogs I mean , not buses ;)
  I think this is going to be more of a quick photo blog rather than a lot of text as most of you know about RSPB Bempton Cliffs anyway on the coast of East Yorkshire, just North of Bridlington.
  So anyway I had my second visit of March to Bempton Cliffs this week.The weather couldn't have been more different than my last visit 3 weeks ago.

  Three weeks ago I saw Gannets and Fulmars through the snow along with Tree Sparrows at the feeders.

  Now there are an increased number of Gannets plus the arrival of Kittiwakes, Guillemots, Razorbills and Puffins on the cliffs and sea as well as Meadow Pipits in the fields.Also this week, the first Gannet eggs were laid :)


Puffins were among the Gannets, Guillemots and Razorbills on the cliffs.


  During our walk around I also bumped into award winning photographer Steve Race running one of his photography workshops :)

  I really do urge you to visit Bempton Cliffs within the next few months to witness one of the UK's most spectacular Wildlife experiences, especially if the Government do the unthinkable and do allow Fracking there in the future :( (Read about it below)

Thank you
