PN has a very positive effect on people!

Thanks, Bempton Cliffs is a fantastic place for spotting sea birds. Gannets, Razorbills...and all nesting along the vertical cliffside. I saw Tree sparrows there for the first time too...wasn't on PN at that time (what a pity) so I did not really take too many wildlife shots. My sister doesn't usually ...I think PN is rubbing off on her!

Ah I understand. Nice that she spotted them on a cliff!

Thank you dandoucette,
I will tell her...these were growing on the cliffside so closer (safe) approach was not possible.

I think the pink flowers may be a type of Silene. Looks like a few different plants all growing together.
