With Christmas celebrations over and on New Years Day, what better way to blow off the cobwebs and fight the extra pounds than a brisk walk on the magnificent Bempton Cliffs? There was certainly a challenging blow doing its best to "take my breath away" and on occasions, attempting (and nearly succeeding!) to "blow the man down", and I'm no lightweight!!
Bird wise, I think many were taking shelter from the blow but Fulmar numbers were c50+; Gannets c30+ including at least 4 immatures; a male Stonechat did its best to stay on the top of vegetation; the sea held Shag, Cormorant and a rapid fly past drake Eider. Nice to see a Weasel on the grass near Grandstand viewpoint.
