Fishing for compliments


Puffins return to the Farne Islands to breed between April and late July each year – for the remainder of the year, they live out at sea

I took this shot on a day trip to the Farne Islands, off the coast of Northumberland. In summer, they teem with seabirds, including Atlantic puffins in their thousands. Setting foot on the islands, I was gobsmacked by all the birds: guillemots, razorbills, kittiwakes. The spectacle took my breath away (though it might also have been the smell). As it was breeding season, the puffins were bringing back sand eels by the beakful to their young. I was delighted to capture this one with its mouth full of fish, wings open as if bragging to his fellow puffins. This photo reminds me of my first encounter with the birds – now one of my favourites.
