There are easier places to see them and in more volume. Skomer off Pembrokeshire and the Farnell Islands off Northumberland both are only just off shore and have lots of boat trips to get to.

I am pleased with them but I was disappointed not to get any decent flying shots. They fly in below the cliff line and just pop up over it and more often than not just land straight in their burrow. I envisaged coming away with some approach and landing shots with mouths full of sand eels. The problems with having preconceived ideas is too often failing to capture them!

What a great set. They bring out the character in the birds
They have such great characters and they really seem to quite like all the attention. They are really very easy to shoot unlike most birds.

Love these shots, such a colourful bird. Lots of minnows for supper.
Thanks, they are brilliant fishermen!

Beautiful shots Barry.
Thanks David.

Amazing set Barry - some really great poses, esp #1&5. Off to Skomer myself tomorrow. Wonder if I'll see any puffins....
