A fine Farne photo (sorry, couldn't resist a little alliteration.) What a bonus to get the Shag, the chicks and the unusual Guillemot. Well done you.

Great image with good plumage detail, I was up on Inner Farne yesterday but the sunlight was far to bright to get any good images, superb location though.

A cracking shot Rob, well done.

A really good wildlife image, Rob, the detail is incredible.
You must have been nigh on poking that Shag with the end of your lens..?!
Very good work and I'd never heard of a Guillemot being 'Bridal' - breeding plumage?
