Conservationists have carried out a survey of seabirds on the outlying islands of a remote archipelago for the first time in 20 years.
More than 250,000 seabirds have flocked to the chalk cliffs at Bempton in East Yorkshire to find a mate and raise their young.
Seabirds nesting on the remote Farne Islands have been hit by heavy rain which killed many of their young, the National Trust has said.
From scavengers pecking at discarded chips on the beach to the tiny faces hiding on coastal clifftops, the UK is home to a range of winged beauties.
STAFF at the National Trust for Scotland’s St Abb’s Head National Nature Reserve are celebrating this summer, as the first northern gannet chick ever to be recorded there was seen on 7 July.
