TA1974 : Puffins and Razorbills, Bempton Cliffs

near to Buckton, East Riding of Yorkshire, Great Britain

Puffins and Razorbills, Bempton Cliffs
Puffins and Razorbills, Bempton Cliffs
On the section called Nettle Trip. 2 puffins on the left, 2 razorbills on the right. The birds top right are razorbills as well. (It's difficult to tell the razorbills and guillemots apart from behind. I've been told that guillemots aren't quite as black.)
Bempton Cliffs RSPB
The RSPB Reserve at Bempton Cliffs, near Flamborough Head, is home to massive numbers of nesting seabirds in spring. Gannets, Kittiwakes, Fulmars, Razorbills, Guillemots and Puffins breed in large numbers. It has the highest population of nesting Kittiwakes in Europe, 37,000 pairs when last counted. The sight and smell(!) of all these seabirds in late May is very memorable, as is the sight of so many keen birdwatchers with massive lenses on their cameras.
