This morning Pinky and I visited and didn't enjoy the near two hour hike but at the end of it we enjoyed great views of the Vulture sat on the cliff. Eventually it took off and landed on a nearer rock to warm up in the sun giving outstanding views.
To the crowd's delight, the bird took off and flew directly towards us, disappearing behind a hill. Incredibly, it appeared from behind the hill and soared slowly, higher and higher, starting at eye level. At times the crowd were in the shadow of this enormous bird of prey. The joy and elation after an incredibly challenging walk was immense. An unforgettable experience.

Despite no sign since 11am on Friday, I decided to go to Bempton Cliffs on Saturday, for the Black-browed Albatross on Saturday. Crazy it may have seemed but actually Bempton is amazing in it's own right and an Albatross would have just been an a dream come true, especially after the photos that had come out on Friday and Thursday.
