Yes we got there in the end.After being disappointed last week.The trip across to the island was a bit hairy,but well worth it. There was only seven people on the boat that took us across giving us plenty of room to photograph what ever we wanted.The first thing that caught my eye was a gannet flying past pretty low.
On to the island to see the tern's,and puffins,this is the second time for me on inner farne island,the first time we were bombarded by the Arctic tern's,this time not a single bird made any attempt to put holes in my head
for what reason I don't know,if anybody has the answer I would love to know.There was one that I did notice was that the terns didn't seem as agitated as the last time we were there,could this be that they are getting more used to the public around them,who knows,that another answer that needs answering.
The puffin must be every body's favourite sea bird,I know it is mine,they must be one of the most colourful sea birds around.The best thing about the island you get to see the puffins and the terns at such close quarters.
Here is some shots of the other bird life on the island.
The shag with young.
Arctic tern chick.
After our trip on the island we headed of to Hauxley to see if there was any thing about,we were in luck and got some good views of a curlew sandpiper on the reserve,a good day by all,looking forward to my next trip out and about.
All wild flowers were taken over the past year,most of them in the Northumberland area.
A small collection of photos of our local birds
Most of these birds were photographed in the north east area.
the glossy ibis
my fist sighting of the glossy ibis was a good one, there it was right in front of the window,there was at least 15 people taking shots of it,must be the most photographed bird in the north east
and rightly so.
birds of pray
most of these birds were photographed in captivity,the ones with out names are not identified as yet.
TRIP TO THE INNER FARNE
