Bempton mid April

Is it worth visiting Bempton mid April or will the birds not be there yet?

Yep, a good time - plenty of birds, and not too much smell yet

The only seabirds that aren't back on breeding colonies by then are terns, and they don't breed at Bempton anyway. If you want to see terns some other time, try the Farnes in late May or June.
