While on Staple Island, although I concentrated mainly on the puffins there are a few other bird species present to keep the camera shutter busy. The isalnd has huge numbers of guillemots although I did not take many shots of them. A moment of 'affection' between a pair.
The guillemots were being kept busy my the constantly circling gulls that were trying to pick off unguarded chicks. Nature in the raw.
A few razorbill were also present.
Number of Kittwake were coming in back in to nests with their characteristic calls.
and numbers of Shag were present and mainly sitting on nests.Business end of a shag with that unusual green eye
Our next stop on the tour was a 2 hour stop off at Inner Farne Island which is my favourite out of the two landing sites due to the Arctic and Sandwich Terns but that will have to wait for the next post.
