What a difference four or five miles can make. This morning we moved from here……………….. The Caravan Club site Bridlington…………….superb showers, laundry facilities, easy access to water and no tow rope required for shifting me about.
We went for our customary wander to see what is what and what is where. I’m in heaven. We were out four hours and only walked four miles. That’s slow even by our standards. I had to stop once to go and retrieve Alf who was rolling in Goose crap. He was covered. Filthy little devil.
This is the view from the cliff top looking back towards the camper. There are flocks of fifty three birds flying around. I think they are Linnets. I’ll have a go for a shot of them tomorrow. Also Meadow Pippets and the odd Kestrel. The Kestrel looked quite normal. I meant I only saw the one.
On we plodded and eventually Bempton Cliffs appeared. This is an RSPB site and quite wonderful…….more than this photo is, the dogs were chatting to a pair of Border Terriers so not the most peaceful of encounters. All the little white bits are Gannets. There are one thousand three hundred and twenty two……….that includes those flying around and those on the other side of the arch.
There are several of these…………..when I first saw them flying I hoped they were Choughs. No they are Jackdaws….Even the Jackdaw would only give a bum end view. I hope they are Jackdaws after all this writing.
The view looking south across Flamborough Head. I spent an hour shooting and watching the Gannets. I’ll go through the snaps and see if any are sharp enough to share. they weren’t feeding just gliding about. The Puffins have all gone. They’ll be bobbing about at sea somewhere .
A really good spot is this.
Have fun. I have to be back in Darlington at the weekend but will pop back here. It’s a grand spot.
