Bempton Cliffs Albatross
By Josh Harrison |

Last season the Yorkshire coast had an unusual visitor. A Black-Browed Albatross which is supposedly only the second seen in the last decade. These birds are native to the Southern Oceans so it's very rare to see them in the North. This one obviously got knocked of course and now seems to spend it's time between Europe and the UK, and it has recently returned to RSPB Bempton Cliffs were it spent a lot of time last year. I did try and photograph it three or four times last year but with no luck as it was often out at sea. Last weekend I decided to try again after I'd seen it was back in the area and while I was told I just missed it when I arrived, eventually it came gliding back along the cliff tops in the evening light and I was able to get a couple of shots. Here is my favourite shot.
