The Bempton Cliffs Albatross
View the amazing albatross at Bempton Cliffs
An albatross at Bempton Cliffs! Visitors have been flocking to our coast to catch sight of the albatross that decided to settle, alongside the gannets and the puffins, at Bempton Cliffs, just a mile of so from our luxury holiday cottages here at Heritage Escapes, close to the stunning East Yorkshire Coast.
The handsome bird should inhabit the Southern Hemisphere, but somehow this albatross lost his sense of direction and last year he made his first appearance around Flamborough Head. He has created quite a stir and visitors reported regular sightings in the summer of 2021, which have continued to increase this year . It appears he is very settled in the company of the myriad of seabirds that nest on and above the precipitous chalk cliffs.
Our luxury holiday cottages
Below we feature images of The Owl House. This lovely 5 Star Gold rated cottage sleeps four in two en-suite bedrooms. It is named after the barn owls that nest within its eaves every year. The parents and their chicks can be viewed from the comfort of each of the 5 cottages at High Barn, via a 24 hour webcam streamed to the living room of each cottage.
