  • Blog Post: Puffin season is in full swing!

    We are well and truly into puffin season now, and I'm still as excited as a child on Christmas morning every time I see one. Our Puffin Patrols have been full every day and we've had some lovely feedback from the excited visitors that are seeing puffins for the first time. The novelty really...

    November will soon be over, Christmas adverts are playing on the television and we’ve already had the first snows of winter, in fact I was lucky enough to have a ‘white birthday’, winter is well and truly upon us. That shouldn’t put you off from visiting Bempton Cliffs though...

    Hi there. Allow me to introduce myself, I’m Chris Calow and I’m your brand new visitor experience intern. I’ve taken the reins from Laura and Becky who did a fantastic job over what was an incredibly busy and challenging time for the team here at Bempton. I think it’s safe to...
  • Blog Post: July/August Recent Sightings

    The last couple of weeks have seen a lot of changes here at Bempton! Most of the Puffins have left the cliffs until next year now, although a few have been seen bobbing around on the water over the last few days. Guillemots and Razorbills have continued to leave the cliffs in large numbers, and there...

  • Blog Post: Swallow chicks

    Afternoon, Time for a quick update on our resident swallows. We think the chicks are about 2 weeks old, and there are at least 5 of them in the nest, one of them being quite a lot smaller than the others. Swallow chicks fledge at around 17-24 days old, so they won't be here for that much longer...
  • Blog Post: Seabird Cruise Adventure

    Hello! A few weeks ago, Becky and I were lucky enough to be invited along on one of the Puffin and Gannet Cruises run by the RSPB, and I thought I’d write a post telling you about our mini adventure. After working up at the centre for the morning, we drove into Bridlington and made our way...

    Here's a picture taken by someone (me) watching the watcher of the birds. I assume its RSPB staff. My wife and I travelled from Lancashire for a day trip. What a fantastic site. Keep up the good work.

  • Blog Post: Making Jo's day

    How good does it feel to release a puffin back into the wild? The smile on Jo Allen's face probably gives you some idea. The box in the photo (henceforth known as a Puffin not Pet Carrier) contains a puffling that was brought to the reserve yesterday after being found in a garden in the...
  • Blog Post: Halfway to Holland

    The following text was written by and posted on behalf of RSPB Conservation Scientist Dr Guy Anderson. The face of the Yorkshire coast has a nose. A pretty, green, rolling nose edged with magnificent white chalk cliffs. Flamborough Head. This nose has many occupants, and sitting on its tip, I can see...
