Bempton In May







Early May at Bempton is a magical time, the cliffs are starting to get crowded and the public's favourite, the Puffin, is starting to arrive in good numbers. Some of the Gannets are already sat on their egg and Razorbills, Guillemots, Puffins and Kittiwakes are courting and even mating.

The day that I took the above images I had a crazy day of weather. I got to Bempton for 5.15am, watched the sunrise (incredible) the light was good, then it clouded over and in came the rain. The rain stopped and then came along the wind, the wind stopped and the clouds cleared and then the sun came back out, then the light was to harsh and basically it was like that most of the morning until eventually the weather did settle down and the day become a good one.

I will be doing a lot more early mornings at Bempton this month so be prepared to see plenty of posts on my blog from what I truly feel is one of nature's wonders of the world - just an incredible place.
