The Farne Is­lands lie off the coast of Northum­ber­land and are owned and looked af­ter by the Na­tional Trust. Chris has been com­ing here in search of puffins, guille­mots and dol­phins for years. A few boat com­pa­nies op­er­ate from Sea­houses, the vil­lage on the main­land – we took Billy Shiel’s full day trip (www.farne-is­lands.com) to travel to Sta­ple Is­land and In­ner Farne, the two is­lands on which vis­i­tors are al­lowed. A day’s boat trip costs £36 per per­son, and there’s also a Na­tional Trust charge of £6.80 on each is­land in high sea­son. The is­lands are open to vis­i­tors from 1 April-31 Oc­to­ber. Other lo­ca­tions to find puffins in the sum­mer in­clude Skomer in Wales and Fair Isle in Scot­land.
