Bempton Cliffs

27th July 2018.

Spectacular chalk cliffs on the East Yorkshire coast, the hundreds of thousands of breeding seabirds are an onslaught on your senses, with the sheer sight, sound and smell of the nesting Gannets ( largest mainland colony in Britain), Guillemots, Razorbills, Kittiwakes and a few Puffins . Run by the RSPB, there are viewpoints where superb views can be had, we made sure we got there early as it can get pretty crowded in the middle of the day, and the weather was warm and sunny, so we returned again in the evening.
