Bempton

Some more pictures from Bempton Cliffs. The cliff top paths allowed us to get very close to all the birds, but it was the Gannets that really stole the show for me. I spent a lot of time trying to get good flight shots, but then I also found myself concentrating on the birds that were sat on the rocky cliffs.

A Gannet giving me the eye.
 
And in flight.


A Guillemot possibly with a Sand Eel .

A very good looking Razorbill.


And applying the breaks for landing.

  35. Fabulous pictures of three birds I have never seen - the guillemot pictures made me chuckle as they almost do not look real and certainly does not look like they should be able to fly.

    Many thanks for adding a gannet, a guillemot and a razorbill to#AnimalTales
