Skomer, take 2

Luckily I’ve got a good friend that has the very enviable job of being head warden of Skomer Island off the coast of Pembrokeshire. With this being the case, if I’m in need of getting away from the main land for a while, Skomer proves to be the perfect retreat to have a change in pace of life. As I did last year, I’ve recently been back out their again around seal pupping to have a bit of a chill and live without theĀ inconveniencesĀ that come with modern life. Unfortunately though, all good things come to an end but I definitely hope to head back out there soon. Here’s a few shots to make you go “Awww”.



A taste of island life.

This week I had the opportunity to stay on Skomer Island as a good friend of mine is the head warden there. It’s not really an offer a sane person would turn down, so of course I went! What an incredible few days it was, just from walking around the island and seeing common song birds, to getting a brief insight into the research done on the migratory sea birds that breed on the island. Anyway, here is a selection of shots from the last few days. I’ll write something decent up soon, it’s been a long day though so I’ll keep it simple and stick to the photos for now
