Farne Islands puffin.

Posted by Curly (South Shields, United Kingdom) on 12 November 2017 in Animal & Insect and Portfolio.

First a huge confession - I've cheated enormously with this picture.
I really wanted to take this boat trip to photograph the very colourful puffins on the Farne Islands, however after boarding the boat the crew informed us that the vast majority of the colony had flown off to scavenge the North Sea in the last three days, and would not be returning until the following spring breading season. Such a disappointment!
I was reduced to photographing a picture stuck on the wheelhouse window and using Photoshop to provide a new background, so sorry folks, please don't regard this as one of "Curly's" pictures.
