Bempton Birdy Blog Bash

Sorry folks, I’ve been a bit out of the loop recently, but I’m back now and raring to go.

As you can see by the title of this post, there is another bird bash coming up, hot on the heels of the Padley weekend. This one is being organised by John and myself. John has posted it on the Wild About Britain forum (see link on the right), as he doesn’t have a blog, and I am announcing it to the world here.

We will be meeting at Bempton Cliffs RSPB reserve on Sunday 11th June at 9am in the car park by the visitor centre.

Some of us are making a weekend of it, and have booked suitable accommodation for the Saturday night or longer. It has been suggested that on the Saturday we might take one of the Puffin cruises from Bridlington. I have checked the site – – and the cruise on the 10th June sets sail at 4.30pm. I’ve only been on the morning trips before, so I don’t know if this is any better or worse. We would have to book in advance, and they do get booked up very quickly. I will make a call later today and see how many places they have left.

Just leave a comment if you want to join us.



  1. Ooh, sounds good, unfortunately I may well be singing that weekend on a BBC4 programme, otherwise I’d definitely come along.

    Strange but Bempton is one of the places I want to go to this year too!

  11. Well, a lot can happen between now and the 11th, but it looks like I’ll be there, complete with teenage daughter in tow…

  12. Excellent! I’ll bring Jack. I promise I’ll keep him on a lead.

    Puffin boat is all sorted. Count us in for dinner on Saturday night. I hope the duck is on the menu.
