Father's day at Flamborough Head
Gannets at Bempton Cliffs
As a surprised treat for father's day my son, Aran,organised a day touring around the cliffs at Flamborough. Firstly a 3 1/2 h boat trip from Bridlington on the Yorkshire Belle took us to the 400ft high cliffs to witness the Spaghetti junction of the bird world with Gannets, Guillemots, Razorbills, Puffins, Kittiwakes and Fulmars travelling at different heights between their nesting sites and feeding grounds---a spectacular sight. After retuning to port we then moved to Bempton Cliffs for an alternative view down onto the nesting sites.The day was brought to a welcomed climax when we connected , after 2h, with the Great White Egret at Tophill Nature Reserve, East Yorks.
