Sophie and I finally got our trip to the Farne Islands a couple of weeks after the Bamburgh expedition. We’d wanted to go back as when we went in 2015 Sophie had forgotten her telephoto lens, and neither of us was any good at getting flying birds in focus, so a re-visit was in order.
Awaiting the boat our lunch was shared with a baby Starling, Mum on guard
Lovely blue skies as we sailed out of the harbour
but 15 mins out to sea and looking back to the shoreline, the clouds were gathering over Bamburgh Castle
but never mind the weather, we saw seals! lots of them!
It wasn’t me, honest!
All by myself
On to the puffins next time 🙂
