Bempton Cliffs - 25th June 2018

Newly fledged Swallow

Another fantastic day on the cliffs! The weather was superb with blue sky, sunshine and a light northerly wind. The birds were also brilliant and showing well, much to the delight of the visitors. A newly fledged family of Swallows caught the attention of photographers and visitors as the parents busily fed them in the bushes outside of the visitor centre.

New lives continue to increase on the ledges with Herring Gull, Guillemot, Razorbill, Kittiwake and Puffin young. Fulmars are sitting on eggs.

"Oi! Will you two keep the noise down?"
