Bempton Cliffs and Flamborough Head.

On arriving at the Visitor Center it is natural to dash down to the cliffs and the spectacle that awaits!
However, an important colony of Tree Sparrows can be viewed near the entrance -

It is undoubtedly the Gannets that provide the main show at the cliffs! The numbers of these magnificent birds have increased significantly with the changing patters of fish and the fishing industry.
The Cliffs.
There are THOUSANDS of them!

There are other birds of course!



The ever-popular PUFFIN has become less common.

Razorbills cling to impossible ledges.

The Kittiwakes are heard calling all along the cliffs!

Bempton Cliffs remains the best Sea-bird colony on the mainland for close views of our iconic species.
