We are away at the coast again. This time we are staying on the east coast but further north close to Flamborough Head. Flamborough is a limestone headland with chalk cliffs on the northern flank. These chalk cliffs at Bempton provide the perfect breeding habitat for a wide range of seabirds. The puffins are the most iconic but there are guillemots, razorbills and fulmers as well as some amazing gannets.
I love the gannets. They are such superb fliers with the sleakest heads and piercing blue eyes. If I was a bird, I would like to be a gannet. I managed some inflight photos today but you’ll have to wait to see them.
In the meantime here is a quick video from this afternoon.
