Auks!

Last Saturday we went for another trip to Bempton Cliffs, to look for puffins. Although not as puffin-tastic as the Farne Islands, which has thousand of pairs, it still has some reasonably good numbers, and it can be fun trying to spot them among the more common guillemots and razorbills. Can you spot the one puffin in the picture on the left?

As well as the auks flittering around, there were loads of nesting kittiwakes, gannets, a few herring gulls, and quite a few fulmars.

Here are a few photos I took down the scope, which have turned out all right, considering I just held the camera up to the lens rather than using the digiscoping adaptor.
