A few more piccies from Skomer. Featuring the very special Skomer vole, an actual sub species of the mainland vole, thats cool!
And a dodgy shot, or two, of the short eared owl that was nesting nearby. Springwatch got some way better shots of it but seen as I have only ever seen an owl in the wild twice (including this one) I was pretty happy just seeing it!
Oh yeh, and the guy on the bench? Its Ray Mears.. will be interesting to see his Skomer prog when it comes onto TV.

I see these and just think ‘ahh’. We didnt focus on landscape piccies but we want to go back later this year to do just that. Skomer is so purdy!

Skomer Puffins!

We went back to Skomer island and had a brilliant time. The puffins were there and they were amazing! I only took a few piccies of them….
It was amazing to be sat so close to the puffins and we spent quite a while watching them tottle about. We were also really lucky as the puffins were just hatching when we got there and there were many parents bringing sand eels to their young, woo for sand eel in mouth pics!
Cant wait to go back to Skomer 😀
