Bempton Cliffs 18-4-14

With Jacqui hitching to get to the coast we headed off for Flamborough head first and having a search for the Tawny pipit but to no avail,but we did pick up a few White wagtails,Wheatears and a single immature male Eider on the sea with not much else happening.we then headed for Bempton where Jacqui managed a lifer in the form of Great Skua with 4 passing through high up throughout the afternoon,not the usual thing to do looking up skywards for Skuas.
The Gannets again put on a show collecting grass from the cliff top we then made our way back to the centre for a coffee and food,whilst we sat photographing Linnets and watching the Tree Sparrows with time passing and people leaving we headed down towards staple newk viewpoint at the southern end of the reserve where more Gannets on the cliff tops gathering nest material.
As the cold was starting to set in we headed back off home but always a great day out at Bempton.
