Skomer and Saltee islands

June 18th, 2010

These images were taken 2 years ago on a trip to both islands. The gannets were on a private island off the coast of Southern Ireland and gave a spectacular display in terms of numbers, noise and smell ! The puffins were photographed on Skomer island off the Pembrokeshire coast. They would come up to you and sit on your foot and peck your boot laces. In-flight shots were difficult as they came into land very quickly to avoid the gulls stealing their sand eels.
