RSPB Bempton Cliffs

Gannet with Chick! Jubilee Corner

I went to the cliffs this afternoon to pick Heather up at the end of her volunteering day and to give Symphony a walk. Of course, I had my camera with me and felt obliged to use it! I walked to Bartlett Nab and then to Jubilee Corner and back.

At Bartlett Nab, my attention was drawn to a Great Skua having Kittiwake for tea, c400ft below us! I was also impressed with the ripples in the water surrounding the birds.

Loving the patterns surrounding the birds!




One of the last to go - Bridled Guillemot at Bartlett Nab. Probably female as the male (not necessarily bridled) will have taken the "jumpling" out to sea.



The Gannets that I am following at Bartlett Nab

Synchronised "ledging"!


At first, I thought this Gannet had two chicks, but it was just a large chick resting in a strange position!
