Welcome to my blog

This is it! I've given up work -retired from the rat race and am about to start on a 10 year adventure, doing all those things I've been meaning to do but never had the time to do them. I've offloaded my responsibilities and it is now my time. So follow my adventures and see whether I actually manage anything!

Inner Farne Island

Whilst in Northumberland I took a boat trip to the Inner Farne Island. We spent about an hour wandering around the small island. All the nesting sea birds had long since flown. But on a rocky crag there was one solitary nest with 2 young shags still to take flight, perhaps they were enjoying the limelight just too much.

  15. Love that last shot with the youngsters so young and empty headed. The guano covered rocks in the second look like they are ice cliffs. Beautiful captures.
