After the Gannets, the highlight of my recent visit to Bempton was the very sociable colony of Tree Sparrows which breed around the visitor centre. If you can get a seat on the patio outside the café there you will no doubt find yourself charmed by their nasal calls. The building itself is covered with nest boxes and most seemed to be occupied - breeding success was also obvious by the numbers of young birds around the feeders. Cracking birds, a real shame we don't get more down south. Species #191 on the photo yearlist.
