That Prehistoric Feeling

Visiting Bempton Cliffs for the first time was an incredible experience. Most amazing were the Gannets. They have a prehistoric look anyway, but as they swooped and soared overhead and dived for fish, they reminded me so much of Pterodactyls.
Absolutely stunning! This one’s up close.

This photo of a Gannet was stunning. You captured it perfectly.

You’re welcome. Yes, that’s lovely to see, and patiently waiting for them if they will able to catch one.

How beautiful the plumage on the head and neck Carrie. How I wish I had been around to see the Pterodactyls like you Carrie!

Yes, I can definitely see the resemblance to their pre-historic ancestors! And, an amazing photo. Of course, I googled Bempton Cliffs for a fascinating read and another entry on my bucket list if I’m lucky enough to get the chance to visit England one day. (I do hope so!) I am thoroughly enjoying seeing everyone’s photo memories 🙂

It sounds wonderful, Carrie. About twenty years ago I went to Phillip Island which is off the south coast of Victoria, Australia (where I live) and saw thousands of seagulls nesting all over the cliffs. Fluffy babies, some with a few new feathers and other birds still sitting on eggs. The noise was incredible, and wonderful. Many people think of seagulls only as noisy pests, ever ready to invade a picnic but I thought it was magic. Seeing your photo and reading about your cliffs has me wanting to go back and as we are allowed to travel again, I think I will pencil a trip in for later in the year when they nest. It’s about four hours away but well worth the long trip. I’ll take lots of photos 🙂

Sharing a Post

Why do my friends need to SignIn to read the post I shared?

Actually, this is a voting security feature. Only club members can read posts submitted into a contest. Since anyone reading the story is able to vote (click the Like button), we reserve these capabilities to members who SignIn. Before we implemented this security feature, people were voting multiple times and making the public voting process unfair and out of balance. To fix this, our staff finally decided to allow only members who SignIn to read the stories. Membership is free and easy, and ensures our club is safe, secure, and family-friendly!

Gems Stories are public:  On the other hand the Gem stories are different, since there is no voting on Gems. During a Gem event, your friends and fans can come on and read without a SignIn. This is one of the great advantages of the Gem events.
