The Farnes (Better Late than Never)

A few belated shots from the Farne Islands, I'm working between two computers at the moment transferring files, so I have to unplug one and plug in the other to get connected, complicated but I'll get there in the end.
The images are of the peoples favorite the Puffin and the incredible Guillemot who lay their eggs on bare rock in extremely exposed positions it beggars belief how they survive.


  1. Dave. Nice to see your " blogging " again. Super shots from The Farnes. All great pics, but flying puffin my fave. I must get up there next year !!

  2. All lovely images. I have heard the expression "steely" when describing the bills of birds in photographs and I think you definitely have it with the Guillimot shot - fabulous.

  3. I know what you mean about guillemots - they have to be instinctively obedient chicks! And what a leap of faith that first flight must be!
