    There's so much to report this week that I'm not really sure where to start. Perhaps with the news that both a marsh harrier and a spotted flycatcher were observed in the area around the centre over the weekend. Both were, of course, welcome visitors, if not a little different in shape, size...
  • Blog Post: Wildlife Gone Cuckoo?

    Perhaps the confusing weather that we have experienced of late has caused a little bit of confusion in our wildlife… This weekend a young puffling was found one and a half miles inland at a factory on Jewison lane in Bridlington. Nobody knows how the 5-6 week old youngster got there but it was...

  • Blog Post: Proud Parents

    We’re pleased to announce the hatching of four baby swallow chicks at the Bempton Cliffs visitor centre. The youngsters, now a couple of days old, are typically hungry and rather vocal about it! Many people are starting their visit to Bempton staring up into the rafters of the porch where the nest...
  • Blog Post: Bye Bye Baby

    You will be glad to hear that all four of our swallow chicks successfully fledged this week. On Tuesday morning we were holding our breath, waiting for the first bird to take the leap of faith, and by Wednesday the nest was empty. Whilst we were very happy that everything had gone so well for them, we...
  • Blog Post: ‘Wet Your Lips’ and Swallow Those Beetles

    Bempton Cliffs visitor centre may soon be home to some new baby birds. The swallows that have been swooping in and out of the centre’s porch have now built a fully serviceable nest and so we’re keeping our fingers crossed that we will soon hear the cheeping of tiny little beaks. The prospective...

    Hello again all, and what a busy weekend it’s shaped up to be at Bempton Cliffs! The week had a very slow start on the interesting sightings front, as the weather was cold, cloudy, and very windy indeed! A single sighting of a whitethroat on Wednesday 18 June was threatening to be our only spot...
