|Puffin on Skomer island...|
Wednesday, 30 May 2012
Back home now after a couple of adventures...went to a family party in Germany over the weekend, then an overnight stay in Pembrokeshire at the lovely "Jabajak" (restaurant with rooms) and a trip to Skomer island - perfect!
Now, I don't know how this happened but I have always wanted to see puffins and was terribly excited about our visit to Skomer. The island did not disappoint - what a place! Fields of bluebells and red campion as far as the eye could see, stunning birds including the cutest of them all: the puffin! I managed to take quite a few photos of the little fellas (see above) and we just couldn't stop watching them! They are busy building nests at the moment and in some cases chicks have already hatched, so you can see the adults flying in from the sea with a beak full of fish. What a treat! Can't wait to go back again!
