This Saturday saw me returning to RSPB Bempton Cliffs to put on another puffin making workshop which was great fun and everyone left with their little clay puffin creation.
Afterwards I set up my stall with lots of seabird ceramic goodies on sale. It was a scorching day and even the sea breeze was struggling to take the edge off the heat – good job there was ice cream…
The centre closed, most visitors went home and I grabbed my camera and longest lens to go and see if I could spot some fluffy chicks on the cliffs. I wasn’t disappointed, but they were all being sheltered from the heat by their parents so weren’t easy to spot.
On the way back to the car I couldn’t believe my lucky encounter with a stunning barn owl, who, oblivious to the amazed onlookers carried on hunting for their tea.
I was even treated to a beautiful hare on my drive home. What a fantastic day! I’m very much looking forward to the next one!
