On a beautiful late summer evening, some members of SI Beverley and District took a trip on the Yorkshire Belle from Bridlington to the cliffs of Bempton. Although many of the nesting sea birds had already left their perches, there were still some young gannets learning to swim, fly and dive for fish. The ship’s Captain steered the boat close to the cliff face so that the nest sites, only accessible from the sea, were within a few feet of our eager cameras. His informative commentary ensured that we appreciated this very special and unique nesting site.
Although rain earlier had threatened to spoil the event, our luck held and we enjoyed a golden sunset to escort us back to harbour.
