On Wednesday 7th June, the year 8s enjoyed a Geography field trip to Bempton and Flamborough. Bempton is the largest seabird colony on the mainland and as such, has a wide variety of interesting birds to see. These include Gannets, Fulmars, Kittiwakes and, of course, Puffins, so noticeable with their orange feet and a firm favourite with everyone. Flamborough is only a few miles further down the coast and where the year 8s could see evidence of wave-cut platforms and stacks as well as some landslips that had occurred. The whole area is facing erosion at an alarming rate because the cliffs are made of ‘soft rocks’. Many thanks to Rosie and Miss Anders for accompanying Miss Gilmour on the trip.
