Bird nerd heaven! Bempton Cliffs is an RSPB reserve on the East Yorkshire coast and home to over 250,000 birds (and twice as many flies!!!).
Every nook, cranny, rock and hole is covered in birds, Gannets, guillemots, razorbills, puffins, fulmars and gulls of every type nudge, bump and bully to claim a spot. How they manage to breed, sleep, feed and rear young on these tiny patches is amazing.
Yesterday I visited a local site well known for being a good place to photograph Red Kites. I took just over 300 images and when I got home and was reviewing them I was getting a little frustrated. Lots of distant shots, lots of out of focus shots. lots of blank sky shots and lots of under lit and dark shots. Then BINGO. Two shots together that made up for the dross.
