Gannets with Gugas
Wow! Another great day on Bempton Cliffs with long sunny periods, warm temperatures of c21 and a light / moderate wind to pleasantly cool us! Of course, attraction of the day was, again, my magnificent legs with Puffins coming in at a close second! The birds continued to show well on the cliffs but it is noticeable that the Razorbills and Guillemots are already heading back out to sea with their young. It is expected that all of the Auks (Puffins, Razorbills and Guillemots) will have left the cliffs by the end of this month.
What could be seen today?
Whilst the birds on the cliff are beautiful in their own right, some today, did their utmost to embellish themselves with wild flowers!
New lives continue to appear on the ledges,
Swallows preparing collecting nest material for their second brood
And who can resist more Puffins?
Some of the birds on the cliff top grassland
And on the sea, sailing by!
