RSPB Gannet Photography Group Workshop

Bempton Cliffs is home to over 11,000 breeding pairs of Gannets from late January to the end of October. Gannets are our largest seabird with a wingspan of 6 feet (2 metres). They pair for life and come back to the same nest site each year. We will look to capture the Gannet on camera from on the cliff edge with their young to flying past the viewpoints at eye level.

Moorland Birds Photography Workshop

Beautiful heather moorland lies at the very heart of the North York Moors National Park. As the seasons change, this stunning landscape reveals a quiet drama all its own. Early summer is characterised by the calls of moorland birds, and, as the evenings draw in, a purple carpet of flowering heather stretches for miles across the open vistas. From April to June comprise the prime breeding season for all moorland birds and the sounds of the varied species we will encounter can be heard for many miles across the moors.
