Bridlington North Beach

The one that got away!

Is it really the end of December? Blue skies, mild temperatures and on the coast! However, thoughts must be with those in western parts of the country, suffering the heartbreak of unprecedented flooding and damage. Twelve months ago, I could only dream of living by the coast, now I am living my dreams! Not a birding day, but a walk with my family along the north beach at Bridlington. I'm sure the temperatures were higher than some days in July!

Here come the Gulls!



Herring Gull under bright blue skies!


In a quiet corner of Bridlington Harbour



Is this a strange Bridlington custom?

Meeting Some of the Neighbours!

Tree Sparrows

For those that are not aware, we have moved house and now living in the village of Bempton, East Yorkshire. I feel that I am going to really struggle with finding birds in this area, very few places to observe and photograph them, and hardly any exciting birds at any time of the year!!!!! I do think, however, that next year, the RSPB garden birdwatch will be rather exciting!
