Puffins of Skomer

Puffins of Skomer - ​In early May 2021, accompanied by great group of friends, I was fortunate to travel to south Pembrokeshire to visit the legendary, Skomer Island.

 

The island is home to variety of sea birds and wildlife, including Puffins, Manx Shearwater, Rabbits and Short Eared Owls. We however were travelling to Skomer for one thing, the clowns of the sea, Puffins!

Puffins spend the entire winter out at sea, battling the gruelling conditions before returning to land in the Summer to breed. These small, comical birds are a pleasure to watch and certainly make for great photos.

To access Skomer you have to book your boat trip over. Once you land you have around 4 hours on the Island. I was lucky enough to travel on two days. So here's a selection of photos I captured over the space of 8 hours.
