Flamborough Outer Headland is a great place to see puffins nesting on the chalk cliffs.

With the nickname ‘parrots of the sea’ they never fail to dazzle visitors to the area with their colourful beaks and waddling walk.

A spokesman said: “There will be a chance to take a look at these fantastic birds and other seabirds with guide Margaret Boyd, from Yorkshire Coast Nature, at Flamborough Outer Headland Local Nature Reserve from 10am to 12.30pm.
