Bempton's Other Birds

Of course Bempton provides outstanding views of other cliff nesting species. However, most visitors want to see Puffins - well they are cute and charming. There were plenty flying in and out of the lower cliff but not so many on the tops and never that close. Just about every nook, cranny and small ledge had a resident of some sort, again black and white birds presenting a challenge for the camera. The birds that really interested me were the Tree Sparrows, nothing like the flighty residents at Dungeness, these birds are almost tame, approximately 100 pairs occupying the plentiful nest boxes at the visitor centre. I would really like to have brought a pair home with me.




Not going far on those wings.


Feral Rock Dove

and my favourite - Tree Sparrows
