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.
OH MY WORD! What stunning photos, Adam. I keep scrolling up to look at them again.ReplyDelete
WoW-zers....these are really special images adam, and birds i don't see here. what a treat!!!!ReplyDelete
These are awesome shots of the birds. Great flight captures. It looks like a great spot to see the birds up close. I would love to see the Razorbill. Enjoy your Monday and the week ahead!ReplyDelete
Amazing shots of our 'feathered friends' in flight!ReplyDelete

Great photos of all the birds but the Gannets would be my favorites. We have gannets here also but I have never been that close to themReplyDelete
Stunning....the gannet has been spotted in the Gulf near our area, but I have yet to see one. Would love to. Now that I see your photos, even MORE SO!!ReplyDelete
You got some great ones there Adam. The two gannet pictures are my faves but the Guillemot in flight is pretty stunning.ReplyDelete

How in the world did you get so close to these birds?!!!!!!! They are so tricky to spot offshore! Epic.ReplyDelete

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