The Puffins of Skomer Island, including Poor Dave and ‘Bee starer Bob’!

I apologise for the lack of blog posts during the last few weeks, I've been so busy with work, family, writing my book and producing and selling my 2020 birds calendars!
    I've also been editing the photos I took a few weeks ago on Skomer Island in Pembrokeshire, photos mainly of Puffins of course.
  I don't have time to write a lot, so instead I will let the pictures do the talking.
Some of these shots have already been seen on my Twitter Nature account and Facebook and Instagram pages, including a popular series of 'Poor Dave', a sad, lonely Puffin who bemoans the fact that he has missed out on a feature in my book, whereas 'Bee-starer Bob' has been included!

So here are lots of Puffins, plus some Guillemots, Razorbills and other birds from our trip to Skomer.
Enjoy! :)
