A new place visited Potteric Carr Nature reserve

Whilst on a weeks holiday we took a trip to Potteric Carr NR for the first time, it turns out to be only 50 minutes from home so why we haven't been before is beyond me.  We will definately be going back though to investigate more of it.

We met up with some friends we first met online but have never seen in person before Stuart Pike and Majella.  Thank you to them for showing us round.

We had a really good day and the Photo's below will hopefully show that.

A trip to the East Coast of Yorkshire part 2 (Scarborough)

As you can see from the Image above Saturday morning in Scarborough was a bright sunny day.  So what better way to start with a walk along the beach before breakfast.

It turned out to be a very enjoyable walk with loads of birds around.

The Views are really Stunning up here on a clear day so if you have not been it is a must if you like the coast.  Filey, Bridlington, Flamborough head and Cayton Bay all worth a visit, also further up the coast you have Whitby.  Unfortunately I can't promise nice whether but I am sure you would enjoy it all the same.

On with the walk and more wildlife and some more views.


Back to Friday Evening we took a walk along the south side and here are some images from early evening as you can tell from them the weather was a little dull and overcast but still able to get views of the Lighthouse, castle and the bay itself.

Finally for this Blog on the way home we stopped off at the top of Staxton Hill and got the view over the hedge.  As you can see it goes on for miles.

Hope you enjoy the Blog.

a trip to the East Coast of Yorkshire Part One (Bempton Cliffs)

This weekend we had a trip to Scarborough and Bempton Cliffs.  The weather was fantastic and saw some great wildlife. and the views were stunning too.  Not to mention the Fish and Chips. the only down side was the Journey which meant trawling through a load of road works on the M1 at 50 miles an hour.

on Friday we drove to Bempton Cliffs RSPB reserve in search of Gannets and Puffins and we were not disappointed.

Firstly though a few views from the cliff tops.

the picture below is of the New Visitor Centre

We then managed to see the Gannets here are a few pics.

Now some Puffins.

A mixture of the other cliff top birds Including Guillemot, Razorbills, Fulmar and Kittiwake.

On the walk back to the Visitor Centre we saw our first ever Meadow Pipit and loads of Jackdawe, Along with the usual suspects, Tree Sparrow, Blackbirds,Goldfinch, Wood, Pigeon, Blue tit, Moorhen, Crow and Collared Dove.

Thats it for now Part to later in the week.
