It was our first trip of the year to Bempton which later in the year is a great place to see Puffins, Guillemots, Kittiwakes, Gannets and Razorbills.  I was surprised to see there was already quite a number of Gannets there, pairing up and looking for the perfect nest site.

We started off with a look at the feeders to see what small birds were around.

We then took a walk along the cliffs - I saw a Seal, but he was a bit far off to get a decent shot, but it was nice to see the Gannets arriving back.

This lone Gannet found space on a ledge

We then saw a large flock of Jackdaws flying past

Meeting up again

We hoped to see a Short-Eared Owl on the way back to the car as one had been seen hunting earlier over the fields, but not such luck this time.

After all that walking we decided fish and chips were in order on the way back through Bridlington, although it was a bit dark for birding by now!
