Farne Islands: 6 July

We spent a pleasant week in Northumberland recently with the highlight definitely being a 6 hr birders boat trip (run by Billy Shiels) to the Farne Islands. This landed on both Staple Island and Inner Farne and provided brilliant opportunities for Puffin shots, especially those in flight - which was my main target.

Here is a small selection of the 2500+ shots I took! To see these images larger and several others go to my website 


  1. Excellent pictures Steve.

    How do they do it with those alternating fish in their bills!

  2. Thanks. Ewan. It was good to see so many full bill loads - hopefully it will be a better breeding season than in some recent years
