Skomer – Puffins Part 1


Skomer Island was the destination for my first dedicated wildlife trip of the year and what a trip it was! The first weekend in July was almost too perfect, it was hot (in Wales!), the sea was like a mill pond, the puffins were at their best and to top it off, before we left to come home we also watched Andy Murray win Wimbledon!

The trip was arranged a few weeks back with @Bucksnaturetog and @Ryanclarkphotos and I had been really looking forward to it because for various reasons I had not been out shooting as much as I would have liked recently and I felt like I was losing my mojo!

Now that we’re back home there are over 1,000 images to go through so I thought I would get the 1st batch of puffin shots up whilst I work through the rest. There are an awful lot of shots of puffins with sand eels to sort out and it’s proving hard to make the cull!

Until then, you can find the puffin gallery here!
