Making the most of this spell of decent weather I decided to have a run out to Bempton Cliffs on the East coast of Yorkshire.By the time I arrived the sun was well up with a temperature of 10°C which steadily rose through the morning.Always amazing the spectacle of thousands of sea birds clinging and nesting on the high cliff face.The usual suspects of Gannets,Kittiwakes,Guillemotts,Herring Gulls,Puffins and Razorbills, plus I was able to pick out several Fulmars flying about which we usually miss.The grassland on the top of the cliffs had Linnets,Reed Bunting,Blackcap,Skylark,Tree
Sparrow and even a Wheatear turned up, a Kestrel briefly hovered above.I had a great time hope you enjoy some of the pictures I took below.N.P.
