RSPB Bempton Cliffs

RSPB Bempton Cliffs

Another fine day and a final wonder round Bempton Cliffs to see the final remaining breeding birds of the year before the holiday's.

The cliffs were fairly quite with many of the Kittiwakes, Guillemots, Razorbills
and juvenile Gannets having left, but there was a good scattering of all the above remaining, though not a great deal of movement due to very calm conditions

There was a Seawatch Foundation event on but even they had no sighting while we were around which was a shame as the sea was very still and made for good viewing, though there was a slight haze.

After Bempton a quick first visit to Thornwick Bay hide was made as good sighting were recorded during the week of incoming waders, but all that was showing was a nice summer plumage Dunlin and a few usual birds, such as Coots, Moorhens and Greylag Geese.
