Philip visited, so we had another go for the Black-browed Albatross at Bempton Cliffs. To our delight, the bird was present on arrival sitting out on the sea to the northeast of Staple Newk. To my dismay, the bird was at least a mile away and the bright sunshine hampered viewing! We headed east to North Dykes to see if that would shorten the viewing distance, but sadly we couldn't refind the bird. We had to get back to York for 4pm to pick up my daughter so left feeling frustrated yet again - strange considering we'd seen an albatross! Will I ever see this bird well?
