Morus bassanus

Or the beautiful Northern Gannet

It was time for the annual trip to RSPB Bempton Cliffs this weekend.

The weather was mixed and 50mph gusting winds made holding the camera steady problematic - not to mention the veering birds!

This is one of my favourite shots of the day, showing the bird's broad wingspan:

Thanks for looking.
