Cliffs teeming with nesting birds! Photos

Fantastic to see so many gorgeous birds nesting on these cliffs – gannets, guillemots, razor-bills, gulls, shags and puffins. I don’t know how they manage to perch on such narrow ledges let alone stop their eggs and hatchlings from falling to their doom!

Quite a sight!!

Photography – The Farne Islands – Bird life like you can only imagine! Fantastic!

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:
