Welcome Back


Kittiwake (juvenile)



Yes folks, it's that amazing time of year again when the seabirds of Bempton Cliffs make their amazing journey's back to the reserve to start breeding. Its only early March and already the Gannets, Kittiwakes and Fulmars are back in big numbers. All the birds are busy with their courtship displaying and nest building.

It is only going to be a matter of a couple of weeks or so before we see phase two at Bempton - the return of the Auks! Guillemots, Razorbills and of course the ever popular Puffins will be back at Bempton soon and I will be waiting on the view points with my camera at the ready.
