Bempton Cliffs Yorkshire

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.
