A closer look at the cliffs north of Hunstanton again emphasises the stark contrast between the top white chalk deposits and the lower red chalk layers. Finer lateral striations reflect that the chalk is a sedimentary rock, laid down in layers over millenia. The angular faces and the large boulders at the base of the cliff face speak of the continuing erosion with time. The face is relatively inaccessible and the seagulls take advantage of this. Whilst one bird can be seen sailing above, another is roosting in the centre right part of the cliff. The long shadows and yellow sunlight show that this visit is still early in the year.
