Dad birding

Walked the Old Fall loop at Flamborough and North Landing area with the family today. Very enjoyable, though the hoped for late Spring mega never materialized...Several Wall butterflies around which were nice to see. Nothing much in the hedges apart from a Lesser Whitethroat. A Cuckoo flew in off the sea and a Gropper was reeling on the head and showed nicely. Enjoyable couple of hours rockpooling later and great views of the usual auks, Kitts and Fulmar on the cliffs almost at eye-level, plus cliff-nesting House Martins. Nice to see my fave seabird, Razorbills at close quarters showing off their bright yellow gapes. Corking!

A Cuckoo gets a warm welcome from the local Linnets
