All the photos in this gallery were taken at the RSPB Bempton Cliffs nature reserve in Yorkshire. I paid my first visit of 2009 on Monday May 11th and a second visit on Thursday May 28th. Another visit was made to Bempton on the 13th April 2010.

Bempton is spectacular at this time of year when all the sea birds come onto the cliffs to nest. It is a sight not to be missed. Even if you aren't a photographer, it's still definitely worth a visit between May and the end of July.

The Puffins, Gannets, Guillemots, Razorbills, Kittiwakes and Fulmars were around in good numbers on the first visit and although it was a very windy day they provided us with some excellent photo opportunities.

There were also photo opportunities around the visitor centre and car park including Whitethroat, Dunnock and Jackdaw. Sedge Warblers could be heard singing in the scrub on the path down to the cliffs and Meadow Pipit and Skylark were seen in the fields.

Two excellent days in very good company and I would highly recommend a visit.
