Incredible to be able to walk about among them.
Every cloud has a silver lining. As I was unable to complete the St Oswald’s Way walk I hobbled off to the Farne Islands off the coast of Northumberland.
What I found was mind-zapping! Bird life that was stupendous! Puffins, Cormorants, Shags, Guillemots, Terns and more. They were fabulous.
You could walk up to the birds and see them up close. I’ve never seen so many. I loved it. We’d gone at the right time. There were hundreds of nests and chicks. Incredible!!
Oh – and there were seals!
Here’s a few photos:
