Puffinless

I think Puffins have had a good deal. Every picture you look at these days is of a cute puffin. However this is at the expense of Guillemots and Razorbills. I thought I’d redress the balance a little. Taken on our tour to Northumberland and Yorkshire last month.

First Swim

Over the edge. A jump into the unknown. This young Guillemot ‘glided’ down to the sea as we watched it from the boat off Staple Island in the Farne Islands earlier this month. ‘Glided’ is a bit strong really; it was more like ‘plummeted’. Anyways he was on the sea and out of the nest. Being looked after by his parents he had escaped the attentions of the marauding Herring Gulls when we left him.

The place and surrounding area is just utopia for Wildlife Photographers. Next years tour will be advertised very soon.
