Af­ter spend­ing the morn­ing on Sta­ple Is­land we caught the boat to In­ner Farne. We’d seen puffins in flight and scur­ry­ing in and out of their bur­rows on Sta­ple Is­land but we had more luck with por­trait shots here, as there was a big flock of puffins hang­ing out on a cliff­side. Chris told me these were off-duty birds loaf­ing about, and they were much eas­ier to pho­to­graph as they weren’t rush­ing about look­ing af­ter their eggs. I waited for one with a mouth­ful of sand eels to perch in a clear space on the boul­ders, and got down low to frame him nicely against the rocks and the grass.
