RSPB, Bempton Cliffs.

May is now in full swing and we are beginning to hear rumblings of a breakout from this enforced Lockdown .It’s been 2 years since my first visit to RSPB Bempton, which is situated on the Yorkshire coast just four miles from the coastal town of Bridlington which is a very good place to stay for a visit.0G3A3313 (2)

The cliff top is stunning and at this time of year pink campion is everywhere .The visitor centre  is well stocked for all your needs ,including cafe toilets and shop.

There are plenty of viewing platforms on the cliff edge giving outstanding views of the coast and most importantly over 30,000 sea birds .
