RSPB Bempton cliffs, Yorkshire 5-6-2017

Postby andygolfer » Wed Jun 07, 2017 2:45 pm

Panning to photograph aircraft is far easier than seabirds, if I was able to I would have got some fantastic pics of the gannets!
This is an amazing place on the Yorkshire coast near Bridlington and just north of Flamborough Head. about 250000 seabirds, mainly gannets, puffins guillimots, razorbills and kittiwakes head there every summer to nest and the vantage points provided on the cliff top make for spectacular viewing. Unfortunately it rained in varying intensities for much of the day which spoilt it a bit but it was still worthwhile. Here are some of my photos:

FRANCIS: Now, this is the palace in Caesar's Square. Our commando unit will approach from Fish Street, under cover of night, and make our way to the northwestern main drain. If questioned, we are sewage workers on our way to a conference. Reg, our glorious leader and founder of the P.F.J., will be coordinating consultant at the drain head, though he himself will not be taking part in any terrorist action, as he has a bad back.
BRIAN: Aren't you going to come with us? REG: Solidarity, brother. BRIAN: Oh, yes. Solidarity, Reg.
FRANCIS: Once in the sewer, timing will be of the essence. There is a Roman feast later in the evening, so we must move fast, and don't wear your best sandals. Turning left here, we enter the Caesar-Augustus memorial sewer and from there, proceed directly to the hypocaust.

Wow, those are pretty stunning. The puffins are great, love the detail. Well done, Andy.

Great shots Andy - especially the behavioural ones, e.g. the various activities of the gannet pairs. Glad it worked out for you despite the rain. Actually the rain adds to some of the shots where there are droplets on the birds.
