A Puffin caught in flight as it launches itself into a fierce facing wind at Bempton Cliffs, East Yorkshire.
Last year when I visited this wonderful RSPB site, I was disappointed not to have seen this attractive seabird but a recent trip proved very rewarding indeed with a good variety other cliff-dwellers present.

Thank you for your response to my previous Bempton feature, "Fulmar Flight."

A difficult bird to capture in flight as they can be so quick with this one having good detail.
