RSPB Bempton Cliffs

The Bempton Cliffs reserve, on the spectacular Yorkshire coast, is home to one of the UK's top wildlife spectacles. Over half a million seabirds gather here between March and October to raise a family on towering chalk cliffs which overlook the North Sea. Safe cliff top fencing and 'wow' viewing platforms means your class can safely view the cliffs, sea and nesting birds as we discover the forces of nature around us; explore the adaptations and food chains of the seabirds; delve into our senses and the seasons; or make waves with erosion and coastal features. School groups, youth groups and home educators are all welcome.
