Puffins in flight

Skomer Island is still providing numerous opportunities to capture images of puffins in flight. There are a number of backgrounds to choose from the dark of the Wick cliff to the sky and then the sea mayweed that is covering the coastal slopes at this time of year.
There are still places available on all workshops apart from the 8th July.

Tawny owl

Managed to catch the tawny owl sunbathing yesterday in a lovely setting in Pembrokeshire.

Wild West Wildlife Offshore Adventure 18th June 2017

The shearwaters in the wonderful light at sunset were probably the highlight for me on the trip last Sunday evening.

Simon, Derek's son-in-law, was not outdone on the day and also managed to capture a puffin in flight with sandeels shot.

Fantastic gallery by Derek Trendell

Derek Trendell captured an amazing set of images of different subjects on the workshop last Tuesday including a seal, jackdaw, razorbill, guillemot in flight and the holy grail shot of a puffin in flight with its beak full of sandeels with the perfect dark backdrop of the Wick.

Skomer is at its best!

Skomer Island is in full bloom with the bluebells and sea campion carpeting the island in pink and blue. This is eleven days earlier than normal and there are still 5 places left on this Saturday's workshop. Now is the time for the special shot of puffins surrounding by bluebells!

The puffins put on a superb show at the Wick on Skomer Island yesterday evening with many birds in flight shots captured back-lit by a setting sun. It doesn't come much better than this as a photographic wildlife experience.
