A week off and a good weather forecast early on, meant a couple of days getting sun burnt on the Farnes was in order. Bad swell and mist meant the first day wasn't the most successful, but still resulted in 100's of photos and Matt seemingly getting island fever. The second day was better with landing on both islands and full sun and more island fever for Matt.
Last time I visited I didn't take a single shot of this species, which is surprising considering how few images I have in my library. I seemed to think they just didn't come close enough as they flew to their colony. I was completely wrong of course and this time spent a large amount of time taking photos as they flew in and out with fish.
