Bempton Birding

Good numbers of very photogenic Tree Sparrows around the car park and visitor centre.

Very few Razorbills present on the cliffs at the beginning of the week but numbers had increased substantially by Thursday.

Gannets are back in huge numbers and were very active proclaiming territory and restoring old nest sites.
Couldn't omit the classic Puffin pose - just lacking the sandeels! Very few on the cliffs Monday but had started to return by Thursday.

Found this winter plumaged Guillemot amongst the thousands in breeding plumage (not many bridled birds seen though).

Fulmars - one of my favourite birds.

Stalling Gannet.
Huge numbers of Kittiwakes were as noisy as ever.
