We visited Bempton Cliffs RSPB, East Yorkshire today and the weather was better than anticipated. Beside the usual sea birds, Gannet, Kitiwake, Fulmar, Guillemot, Razorbill and Puffin I was lucky enough to get some shots of a Kestrel sat peering down from a cliff ledge.
I had earlier photographed a Kestrel, a little distant but this was a far better opportunity, thanks to the gentleman who told me about the nearness of the bird.
A good day to day, we went to Seamer Tip Pools this morning and I found a pair of Little Ringed Plover.
We then went to Bempton and saw Willow Warbler near the visitors centre before proceeding to the cliff face, plenty of Sky Larks in the meadows at the top of the cliffs and the sound together with that of the Meadow Pipits is lovely.
On the way back we went to Filey Dams YWT, nothing exciting until looking at a Little Grebe nearing summer plumage I was able to point out that immediately behind on an island to the main pool was a Water Vole. The first we have manged to see at the reserve.
