Gannet Flight Paths. Spent a couple of days at Bempton Cliffs, near Scarborough, over the weekend, my first visit there. Once we got there (Helen came along for the ride this time) after a tiresome 5 hour drive up the A17, we went straight to the RSPB centre on the cliffs at about 1PM, and had something to eat in the nice cafe there.   Weather was bright but windy (well it is a cliff!) as we set off for a walk along the cliff edge to the various watchpoints along the way, to see what was abo...

Some shots from a lovely wedding in Norfolk last week, in a church built in 1600, and then to a reception in an old farmhouse built at a similar time. A shame it had a covid limit to 50 people, but a good time was had by all as they entered into married life.       ...

Well 2020 was a strange year for everyone, and unfortunately quite a few of us lost friends or family to Covid. Hopefully we can pull out of it this year with the vaccine and all start living life again as we want to. I didn't get out with my camera as much last year for obvious reason, but here are some of my fave shots from when I did get out. I spent a lot of time with this Barn Owl just after Lockdown 1, when I would visit every evening and watch her collect voles for her young. I got a s...
