Puffin Time Again!!

By phil_j  
Hi all,

We're back from our short break on the Isle of Mull, and what a great time we had there as always.

Managed to get home OK this year as well, after being caught up in the terror attack on Glasgow airport in 2007 we feared the worst, but today was plain sailing...thankfully!!.

To pre-warn you, I took one or two shot's of some Puffin's on Lunga whilst watch out for a severe dose of Puffin therapy to come.

Hope to be able to look at all your uploads later, just unloading the luggage and winding down this evening.

Here are a couple of shot's of the Puffin's taken on Thursday, for these shot's I was trying to get a sense of the surroundings as well as a portrait of these great little birds, hope you like them.

Lunga is part of the Treshnish group of Islands, to the West of Scotland, about a hour by Boat from Mull
