The fantastic RSPB Reserve at Bempton Cliffs, on the North Yorkshire Coast, is a hive of activity at this time of the year. Literally thousands of sea birds are nesting on the cliff ledges, a true Sea Bird City and quite a spectacle if one has never seen it before. Thousands of Gannet, Razorbill, Guillemot and Kittiwake, along with hundreds of Puffin and Fulmar are busy laying eggs and raising youngsters. I left it a little late this year in visiting the reserve but nevertheless managed some shots of the spectacular display of the Gannet, along with an obliging Razorbill and Guillemot.

Can’t wait till next year when I will visit earlier in the season in order to catch the birds, in early spring, when they are returning to the cliffs.
