As promised, a few more pics from our recent trip to the Farne Islands.

Who doesn't like Puffins?

Re: Puffins (Farne Islands)

A wonderful series with excellent detail in the white plumage Dave. I especially like number three with the sand eels.

Hi Dave

Lovely shots and a great record. I bet you have hundreds more! I would!

You have added to my desire to go to Farne, perhaps next year.

thank you

Thanks Peter,

I'm finding that I'm getting better results the more I use the kit.

It would be great to meet up again, just let me know when you're available.

Dave

You're correct Peter, I have hundreds of pics of Puffins.

This was our third trip to the Farne Islands, if you've never been there I'd recommend that you add it to your must do list.

I look forward to seeing your pics when you've been.

Dave
