Antisocial behaviour – at a wildlife reserve!

We had a great time today on the RSPB gannet cruise off Bempton Cliffs, where we watched the seabirds from the surface of the sea rather than the clifftops and fed the gannets a helping of mackerel.  Following the cruise, we had the statutory fish and chips (you have to have them when you visit Bridlington) and then visited the Bempton reserve to check the birds out from the clifftop.  All was well until two morons turned up on a jet ski and accelerated towards a raft of seabirds on the surface of the water.  Needless to say, the birds scattered and, I expect, the guys thought it was hugely entertaining.  So, this is the hastily grabbed picture of the two clowns and their machine, complete with identification number, which I’m sending to a selection of interested parties in the hope that something might be done to protect such areas from future disturbance.

  1. It seems there are always a few inconsiderate, self-centered people who don’t think through the consequences of their actions. The best we can hope for is to try and educate them to how their actions harm others and hope the lesson sinks in.
    On a more cheerful note, we liked the experiment you performed using Lightroom on the gannet pictures you posted earlier. It motivates me to do some photo experimenting.

    I’ve been reading about layers and photo popping which allows you to pick out a colour leaving the remainder of the picture in monochrome. I can do it with one of my small cameras but I’m told I should be able to do something with Lightroom. My next experiment.
