Back On The Farnes
Birds in Abundance 2014
It has been along time since I ripped off my left kneecap in an accident at home, but I was determined to try and get back to the Farne Islands to photograph the wildlife. Over the last year I have had intense physiotherapy however I have a way to go before I can walk properly again but with a couple of walking poles and a full leg brace I managed to land on the Inner Farne Islands and Staple Island during May 2014 to photograph the Puffins, Terns and Guillemots. The good news is that the colonies are doing very well and there was an abundance of birds unlike 2013 when the severe storms flooded many of the nests and the young perished. 2014/2015 looks a great year for them so far and the bird numbers are increasing.
