I’m not expecting this one to get many likes or approvals. Herring Gulls – understandably – have a bit of a bad rep in Bridlington. Their noisey early morning calls are usually unwelcomed. However below that brash exterior they are magnificent powerful birds and this one was lit beautifully last night by the late evening sun. It seemed majestic looking out across the harbour – if only they understood not to start shouting before 7am!
On the other hand – this was the scene when we got back to the car – completely sprayed in gull droppings – do they deserve their Bad Reputation?
Timelapse: Squally showers over Bridlington.
A timelapse from Sewerby cliffs as the thunderstorms rolled through yesterday. The end frame shows when the hail storm hits the camera and at that point a huge lighting fork lit the sky above us and we decided discretion was the better part of valour and ran to the the cricket club and the guys in there were kind enough to give us refuge until it passed.
