We are only just recovering from the albatross at Flamborough Head last week.

The bird, which is actually a lot smaller than it sounds, is usually found in South East Asia and this is the first time it's been seen on the UK mainland.

And our cameraman David Rimmington was one of the lucky few to see it!
