Big Day at Bempton....Tree Sparrows

Sunday began at 3am with my alarm going off, i must've been mental! I have done any photography/birding away from my home counties of Herts and Beds for a few months and with the action around here getting a little quiet had hatched a plan to go find some sea birds. Picked Matt up at 3.30 and by 6.30 we were pulling into the car park at RSPB Bempton Cliffs with the main aim to photograph Gannets in flight and hopefully get a really close encounter with one and possible a full on head shot!

It was an absolute scorcher of a day with temperatures reaching around 28 degrees and the sun shone all day, we began around the then un-opened visitor centre with the regular Tree Sparrows, many people probably walk straight past them but we spent some decent time with them. They mainly kept to the visitor centre roof which meant you were looking up at them so being creative and patient was required to get any decent images but occasionaly they did perch in more natural surroundings which was pleasing, here's the Sparrows with more photos to come later....
