managed to get a day on Skomer island yesterday and got some much needed practice in.

Light levels were low at times which made it difficult to keep constant camera settings, maybe auto ISO is the way to go, I'll have to get the manual out to see how to do that.

I'm off there again tomorrow :o)

You've captured those wings perfectly. There's a photographer over on birdforum who swears by auto ISO, perhaps I'll explore that method too.

Thanks guys.

Yes Gerwyn, there were a lot of them there all day long, when we were waiting up at the shop for tickets they were even mating on that post but light was low that early in the day. They were even on the post when we came off the boat but we had to rush home.

Superb capture, Geoff. I was there 10 days before this shot and failed to get one like this. I achieved plenty of sharp Puffin bums flying away from me but no incomers. Respect.
