Bempton, yellowhammer and gannets

This is called Video digiscoping at Bempton Cliffs.

9 July.

Last morning walk to Bempton Cliffs.

Skylarks singing.

On the left hand side of Cliff Lane, a whitethroat sings from a bush. On the opposite side of the road, a chaffinch sings. Both birds wait till the other one is finished.

A yellowhammer sings from a telephone wire.

A ringlet butterfly.

A pheasant calls.

Between the RSPB visitor centre and the cliffs, a linnet. And a swift flying.

Tree sparrows on the fence of the first viewpoint to the southeast.

At Staple Neuk, many breeding and immature gannets.

Puffins. Shags. Fulmars.

A male reed bunting singing from the top of a pole.

At the bird feeding station near the RSPB centre: wood pigeon, blackbird, tree sparrows, and my first great tit at Bempton.
