Farne Islands all day trip

Yesterday I took the chance to visit our mini Galapagos, I took over 750 photos. The birds seem to be catching plenty of food and as ever the smell, noise and frenzied activity will stay in my mind for a long time.

Orkney 2014

Got back 2 weeks ago from the Folk Festival on them magical isles, the weather was shite. I did not get too much birding done but the music and ale was top notch.

Lesvos last 2 days

Had a relaxed couple of days and tried to get decent shots of the elusive Ruppels Warbler, but in the short time it showed the camera would not focus. On the rare occasions this happens you zoom right in to 200x and it solves the issue but this time the bird was gone when I zoomed back out. So the shot of the star bird of the island is 200x zoom action shite , the Red footed falcon is also 200x action and the Pratincole. It was a shame to leave the place but a trip to Orkney beckoned.
