Immature (1st winter) Kittiwake
I decided that both myself and Symphony needed a good walk so we headed up to Bempton Cliffs at 0700hrs. Walking up Cliff Lane, a few Yellowhammers flitted around the hedgerows and Lapwings displayed to each other on the flooded fields. Nearer the reserve, several Reed Buntings were seen included this pair near Grandstand viewpoint.
The day held the promise of spring with blue skies, sunshine and a light blow and continued until cloud increased late afternoon. The cliffs held Kittiwakes, Gannets, Herring Gulls and Fulmar but were Auk less with only an occasional Guillemot being seen in flight. I decided to concentrate on birds in flight - not an easy task with Symphony in tow!
Marmite Gull - actually Herring Gull but you either like them or hate them! I like them!
At Bartlett Nab, I managed to find a "Blue Fulmar" that hung around for a while! Unfortunately no images, but did manage some of the resident Fulmars.
Of course, a Gannet
When Kittiwakes "gape", I think they resemble vampires! Not sure why!
