Sea, Sun and Serenity

Since the beginning of October we have not had it bad at all around the Farnes. Yes there has been a few days when the weather has been dreadful and the seas were rough, but over all not bad at all. Some day’s have been a pleasure and we wished we had some of this during the summer, but it was not to be.
There has been a good few Guillemots hanging around and the odd Puffling (baby puffin) too, which is always nice to see.
We have had a few Bottlenose Dolphins, the odd Basking Shark and a Minkie Whale. On the bird front we have had lots of Goldcrest, Fieldfare, Redwing, Redpoll, Little Bunting, Purple Sandpipers, Turnstones, Yellow-browed Warblers, Merlin and Short-eared Owls. This is only some of the birds that have landed on the islands so its not bad at all.

We are still waiting for that mega bird to arrive and you never know what the Farnes will produce.

Here are a few pictures of the flat calm seas, beautiful sunshine and the serenity of the farne islands.

We are now up to 14 pups with many more to come. The harbour is also starting to get the male and female Eider Ducks back after moulting and they are looking stunning too.

Thanks for reading once again.
