I spent a wonderful, if very windy, day at Bempton Cliffs, East Yorkshire, yesterday with my friend, Paul (PaulB45). Thousands of seabirds of several varieties to be seen, including Fulmars, one of which I feature here.
In all my live-long days, I've never faced such fierce winds - it was a case of two steps forward, one step back! Gale force winds along with mostly cloudy skies were not best the conditions for photography, especially as the IS struggled to operate efficiently while the lens was being buffeted from all directions. Nevertheless, it was well-worth being at this fantastic, and highly recommended site.

Thanks to those who showed interest in my previous upload, "Bude Buzzard."

Nicely detailed, a very well timed capture considering the weather conditions that we had to cope with all day + the 5.00 am start to get there but well worth it I think looking at this image.

A terrific inflight capture Terry, you wouldn't have strayed near a cliff edge yesterday if you'd been in the South West, it was blowing a hoolie and the rain was driving down all yesterday!
