Puffins of South Haven

We had planned to visit Skokholm, the island in the image above. However, the wind was quite strong and there was a rolling Atlantic swell which was kicking up the local tide races considerably…so we opted for a more conservative option, a paddle to the much nearer Skomer Island.

Skomer has a huge population of puffins, razorbills and guillemots. They all seemed to be out and about, soaking up the sun.
