One of my favourite aspects of Puffin Island is that you get so close to some of our most beautiful and charismatic bird species. It's great to be among Guillemot, Razorbill, Puffin, Shag, Fulmar and Kittiwake. This year I thought I'd bring my camera along and try and get some snaps whilst we were waiting to move on from one spot to another.
Birds are flying around all the time so provide regular opportunities for flight shots. This was my best.
Guillemots (especially 'bridled'), although not as jet black as Razors, I think think have to be my favourite British Auk. They are just so lovely and their chicks look like Pingu!
I'm really glad I brought my camera this year as it seems a shame to waste the opportunity!
