RSPB Bempton Cliffs, Birds in Flight from Grandstand

Kittiwake

Today, I have to say, was a challenge! The wind can only be described as Arctic! The wintry showers consisted of sleet which felt like glass hitting exposed body parts! The day improved weather wise to sunshine, but the wind remained strong and consistent. Even when dressed for the occasion, standing in the full force could only be tolerated in minutes! Today was, of course my day for volunteering at the cliffs, spending the day in excellent company on Grandstand Viewpoint. The second challenge was located Puffins for our visitors! For the second weekend, the Puffins had departed the cliffs, favouring the North Sea, with only small numbers being seen. So, between trying to locate Puffins, during the quieter periods, I had a go at improving my birds in flight photography, a skill I find most difficult to master!
