Atlantic Puffin - just landed and about to run the gauntlet of Black Backed gulls waiting to mug it of a mix of sand eels and a spratt by the look of it.

Taken back last June on a beautiful day on Skomer Island.

Many thanks to all whose who took time to comment on my last upload - it is very much appreciated

Hi Martin, here's A big click from me for No:40.

The detail is awesome in both the Puffin & the fish. I do like the way you have cropped this, gives more impact IMO

Cracking photography
