I was lucky enough to get a last minute place to stay on Skomer Island for 2 nights. The weather wasn’t great on the first day but really picked up at sunset then the 2nd day it was glorious sunshine with the added bonus it was a Monday and no boats come over so it was like having the island to yourself. The Puffins mainly gather at the Wick, there are thousands so you cannot miss them. As I stayed over night this allowed me to get up around midnight and head out for a walk in the dark to hear and see the thousands of Manx Shearwaters that comes back to the island once the sun has set. Amazing to hear the noise and see the masses flock back.

So on with the photos, here are a selection, there are more on my flickr photostream
