Staple is good for these kind of Puffin in flight shots.

Great action capture, Jason. Fast birds, difficult shot to get. I must try and get up to the Farnes!

Classic and comical from the clown of the bird world. Nicely captured, Jason.

Any in-flight capture is hard to get right, this is one of them that has been done very well indeed, good work Jason like it a lot.

Amazing shot, tried to capture something similar at the Isle of May on Sunday but failed miserably - the little blighters are so quick!

Great timing!
