Gifts for my beloved!
My call to the cliffs today was well supported by great weather, blue skies, sunshine, occasional cloud but challenged by a strengthening blow that required me to keep on my fleece! The breeding season is now in full swing with the young of most birds easily seen. For those with cameras, some excellent photo opportunities can be had! Of interest, the Puffin nest at Grandstand viewpoint is allowing occasional telescope views of the Puffling but the tunnel is dark making images impossible. Also, a Puffin carrying sand eels near Bartlett Nab, stood on a ledge(distant) for nearly an hour and made no effort to deliver its cargo to a hungry Puffling!
Today, I found the glorious Gannets in a very photogenic mood!
Gannets with young, known as Gugas
Feed me mum, but please don't eat me!
And of course, the (loveable) Puffins
Always a delight, a Bridled Guillemot with chick (Jumpling)
"Are you sure this is ours?Razorbills
And an ever watchful Herring Gull
And finally, today's sightings
