A Day on Inner Farne


I had the pleasure of spending a day on Inner Farne on June 24th 2013.It was amazing to be surrounded by so many seabirds and see them at such close quarters.

Puffin with sand eels.

The arctic terns were very terrotorial as they defended their nests alongside the footpath.A hat is neccessary;)

The terns came back with sand eels.

A lot of the shag nests had chicks in them.

 A fantastic day and my first sightings of sandwich terns too.:)

Many thanks has to go to the National Trust for allowing us access on to the islands to see this 
 amazing spectacle up close.

There was even plenty of birds at Seahouses harbour including lots of eiders with their ducklings.
