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.
