Farne Isles 3 - Puffin family groups













What a great experience a visit to the Farnes is, having read about it and seen great pictures from a number of great photographers does not prepare you for a first visit.

Previously I have seen Puffins at Flamborough and Bempton of course, great places which I recommend but Puffins in large groups allowing people close access as you get on the Farnes is something different.

I was taken with the number of sea birds reeling around the isles as we went out on the boat, the groups of Guillemot stood atop rocks providing great views. Disembark at Staple Island and immediately at the top of the steps are Puffin groups as you get all over this rocky isle similarly with Shags and other birds.

Love the black faced youngster!

It's good that you are drip feeding us with the great Farnes pics Mike. It is a place I have not yet visited. Hoping to get there with my wife next year.
I have put the exif on my zenfolio photos now.

Hi Mike, Lovely pictures of the Puffins. I imagine it was a great experience visiting the Farne Islands. Its good that you also had decent weather to get good pictures.

Thanks Vince & Lyn the Farnes is a great visit. Get there if you get the chance.
The weather was good Lyn but rained on the journey back, in an open boat you get pretty wet!
Will view the exif's Vince.

Wow! Great to have casually included a juvenile Puffin - not something you see every day!

Thanks Michael
Saw one at Bempton a few weeks ago so only maybe my second.
