Gannets and Puffins

A couple of videos from a visit to Bempton Cliffs RSPB reserve. Huge numbers of common seabirds (except Fulmar, which were oddly scarce) going about the, occasionally violent, business of breeding. The continual noise from the Kittiwakes, Guillemots, Razorbills and Gannets provides the backing track.

The reserve is also blessed with many Tree Sparrows around the fields along with a few Corn Buntings.

Look out for the crafty Guillemot towards the end of the Gannet fight in the first video.
