Visitors set to be in a flap at bird attraction!

A WILDLIFE attraction near Filey is set to soar again after launching its annual popular cruise service.

RSPB Bempton will again ferry visitors to its towering 400ft chalk cliffs to get a closer look at the 20,000 seabirds nesting in the area during the summer.

Twitchers will be able to see gannets, guillemots, kittiwakes, razorbills, fulmars and puffins as they make home and raise their families.

Kim Smales, RSPB cruise co-ordinator, said: “All around, birds take to the skies or plunge into the sea to feed.

“You’re surrounded by nature in all its hectic, passionate and splendid glory.

“Don’t worry if you can’t tell your razorbill from a guillemot, volunteers from the RSPB group will be on board to point out the difference, and answer any other questions that you may have.”

The first of this year’s cruises will set sail on Saturday, May 5 and will run every weekend until mid-July.
