It took a while for June to warm up but it’s certainly finished with a hot spell as Tuesday finished up easily the hottest day of the year with the temperature soaring to 29.8°C or 85.6°F. The hottest day I’ve recorded in June is 31.6°C (88.9°F) which also happens to be the hottest day we’ve had in the last six years.
We made a planned visit to RSPB Bempton Cliffs to see the nesting sea birds. It was a super day out on the cliff tops. It was a little cooler than inland with a stiff breeze blowing.
The breeze seemed to suit the gannets just fine and these magnificent sea birds were able to take off and land into the breeze with only a few adjustments to their wings. No flapping was necessary.
