Wonderful additions to this set, each and every one of them.
Particularly #8 with the landing bird being watched by its companions on the flowering meadow, and #12 captured is such magnificent detail.
Quite a feat. I've only ever seen puffins from a ship, and was surprised at how small and swift they were in flight.
Looking forward to those promised images of them on the ground.

Hi Anand,

A great set of additional images and I too am taken by #'s 8 for the landing and, especially, #12 for the level of detail you've managed to capture in the bird. I also notice in that image that it doesn't appear to be ringed - I'll have to have a word with my Birding Neighbor who is 'in' to such things and who is a Skomer regular!

I will also be looking forward to the ground shots!

Thanks for the additional images and best regards, Neil.

I would SO love to photograph these birds! Worth the very long lineup I imagine!

Of the first bunch I like number 8 best and of the second group number 12! Nicely caught.

Regards

Thanks all, I personally like #8 myself and I wasn't sure about #12 initially because I expected the bokeh to be very busy but it doesn't seem bad for the most part.

@Mike - queueing is worth it for sure. But to really experience the island you have to stay over (its a minimum 2 nights stay). I hear at night time you get about the half a million Manx Shearwater flying across the island which means and sound of them flying across is amazing (or so I hear). Also the fact that you are on an island with very people itself is novel. The whole experience is unique and should be on everyone's bucket list especially if you like nature and birds.

@Neil - I wonder if they mind me coming along with my camera, you should put in a good word for me
