Puffins have started bringing in sand eels this week on the Island of Skomer. Taken yesterday on this years visit - whilst the rest of Wales basked in glorious sunshine the island was covered in overcast fog n mist yesterday......anyone visiting this week are gonna have a fabulous site of Skomer's wild flowers - stunning bluebells n campion cover the island at the moment - then add the birdlife and what can I say...superb place to visit.
