The viewpoints overlooking the cliffs give the public grandstand views across the cliff-face, the home to thousands of seabirds.
Incredible numbers of Kittwake, Razorbill, Guillemot and Gannet swirling around this epic landscape.
The trip started at midday Saturday, a spontaneous decision to head away and by five, we arrived at the Lighthouse car park at Flamborough. I made tracks immediately to connect with the male Black-headed Bunting that sat out in the open on a gloomy afternoon, preening, roosting, before making a dash to the top of the hedge-line where it paused briefly before disappearing into the adjacent field.
I then disappeared as the weather was closing in. Heading back to the car park where the female Subalpine Warbler wasn't as elusive as suggested, feeding in a Sycamore close to the path.

It started to rain heavily so we retreated to return the next day to a bright and sunny day to views as the one captured below.
We walked round the headland via South Landing before heading back for a stop at Bempton Cliffs.
Wow - what a place! Absolute magic - I was blown away.
So many birds, lulled me into believing that we live in a fertile and prosperous land rich in bio-diversity. Sad to think that these creatures are under massive pressure due to our unrelenting destructive activities at the expense of the scene I was witnessing. Why would we destroy this? It's inconceivable that we as a race are so profligate when it comes to the protection of the natural world.
Our Planet - I will fight to the end to ensure that we protect it.
For now, I was so chilled, so happy watching this lot.
