Skomer, Pembrokeshire

Warming DSCF3228

The website for Skomer Island says

If you do not wish to socialise

You will have the whole island

To yourself

DSCF2958 MASTER

To enjoy one of the spectacular sunsets

Master 2 DSCF3195

Before the thousands of Manx Shearwaters fly back in

DSCF3432 #B

And fill the night sky with their calls

This is true

DSCF2736 MASTER

When the daytrippers have gone, the island is yours alone

DSCF2863 FINAL

Along with the thousands of puffins

BLOG DSCF3143

That come out in the evening

DSCF2777 FINAL CROP

You might not encounter the other ten or so people left on the island

And the sound of the returning Manx Sheerwaters in the early hours

DSCF3203 MASTER_USE

Is eerie and unearthly

DSCF2918 CROP

A spectral, alien clatter

Master 437

Filling the sky

The puffins congregate at The Wick

To see them reserve a room very early

DSCF2950 MASTER

(Months in advance)

DSCF3165 23.55 col cast

You won’t regret it

If you’re a puffin fan
