Our Activities - Bempton Visit

Last Wednesday the Driffield Probus Club had a visit to the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds site at Bempton Cliffs.  After an initial welcome and briefing by the site events manager Poppy Rummery.  On a perfect summers day for Bempton we then split into small groups each with a guide to observe the birds on the cliffs.

Poppy had told us that there were an estimated 500,000 sea birds on the cliffs.  We had wonderful views of all the species of sea birds but the highlight was to see a barn owl close up hunting in the middle of the day in bright sunlight obviously hunting to feed hungry young mouths.

After this twenty one of us then went to Clickham Grange, Burton Fleming where farmers wife, Carol Skelton, provided us with a wonderful afternoon tea.
Our next visit will be a conducted tour of Burnby Hall Gardens on Wednesday July 6th followed by afternoon tea and on August 6th we will be going gliding to Pocklington Gliding Club.

The next meeting at the Cricket Club will be an illustrated talk given by Sheila Cadman on the ‘History of Wansford’. 
Anyone interested in joining any of our activities as a guest are most welcome.

While the chairman is on holiday further information regarding the Club can be obtained from Gerald Massey on 01377/257063 and further details can be found on our Driffield Probus Club Website.
