Puffin and fulmar chicks, corncrake, in Bempton


The Bempton Cliffs Seabird Spectacle from siamfilms on Vimeo.

7 July.

In the morning; blackbird, two collared doves, a robin and two dunnocks in the garden.

Along Cliff Lane: whitethroats, barn swallows, and a yellowhammer singing from a treetop.

At the first Bempton Cliffs viewpoint, a linnet on the fence.

A puffin chick ventures out of its nest hole between the rocks.

Inland, in a bird-friendly agricultural area, a wren singing.

A lesser tortoiseshell butterfly.

Two tree sparrows on a fence near the cliffs.

Near the third viewpoint to the north west of the RSPB visitors center, a fulmar sits protectingly on its white fluffy chick.

Near the first viewpoint south east of the RSPB visitors center, a painted lady butterfly.

The last cliff viewpoint to the south is an excellent spot to see gannets flying and landing. They come here to gather grass for their nests.

Then, again a walk through bird friendly farmland. A corncrake calls. A rare bird which is not supposed to occur here.

A yellowhammer. Goldfinches.
