Next it was on to the Arctic Tern colony, having been warned that at this time of year they are very aggressive as they are sitting on eggs, there were nests everywhere, virtually right up against the walkways, and the hat that was advised to wear, was certainly needed for the aerial bombardment of sharp beaks, but beautiful birds up close.
Other species on the Farnes where Kittewakes, sitting on their nests on the cliff faces.
Another Species that was sitting tight on their ramshackle nest were Shags
Another Black and white bird, less evident but just as nice was the Razorbill
The last species I am featuring is the Eider, lots of them around the Farnes and also at Seahouses on the mainland.
So well camouflaged was this female on the nest that I nearly stood on her!
Coming Soon the Seals of the Farnes
