A few snaps from a trip out to Puffin Island today, my second time but still fantastic! The sights, sounds and smells made it a real experience.
The main reason for the visit was to survey and ring gulls as part of an RSPB project. A big thanks to Rob for arranging for me to be able to tag along.
Here's the first gull ringed on the day, I believe over 150 ringed in total. It may be cute now but will soon be thieving your fish and chips at a seaside town near you!
While I did help a bit with some gull bagging, I was there for a bit of indulgence with my trusty Canon. A few of my better snaps as follows:
