Bempton Cliffs, Yorkshire

I left Norfolk early in the morning and spent much longer than I expected heading north to Bridlington in Yorkshire.  A combination of road works, traffic jams, minor car accidents (that, thankfully did not involve me) and a music system that would not connect to my phone made for a long journey.

But eventually the journey did end and I was glad to pull into the carpark of the RSPB reserve at Bempton Cliffs, where I was greeted by my brother and life saving sandwich and coffee!

Bempton Cliffs, as its name suggest are a set of sea cliffs that look out onto the North Sea - I had never been here before, but given the chance I will be going back.  These are just a few 'landscape shots' - the birds will come later.







You can find out more about this reserve here - and rest assured, that there will be picture of birds to follow, lots of pictures!

You can find more shots from around the world at Our World Tuesday.

I am always amazed by the height of those cliffs along the North Sea there in UK. Eons ago when that was connected to the mainland can you imagine standing at the bottom of them looking up and wondering how to get up there?

Haven't read your blog in a bit. Sorry. Looks like you're back in England for another visit? or for work?

We were on the North Shore of Lake Superior this past week, and though in very different parts of the world and of different rock substance, these cliffs and even the arch are incredibly similar in scene.
Superior's north shore and scenes are among my absolute favorite, so I think I'd have to visit Bempton Cliffs on the North Sea if given the opportunity!
