Wednesday afternoon, and it was time for my yearly visit to Hermaness on Unst. Jase decided it was too good to miss, so decided to join me too. The birds didn't disappoint, with Puffins, Great Skuas and Gannets all showing well in the summer sun.
Star bird must go to the Puffins, which were so confiding they were walking past us at a range of 2 feet or so! Lots of these wee clowns were on the cliffs and seemed to be as interested in us as we were in them..
The Great Skuas were all over the place too, with many non-breeders forming 'clubs' and allowing very close approach. These brutes just don't seem to show any fear! and I also must have stumbled into a breeding territory, as one bird in particular was very interested in knocking my block off...
Jase about to get up close and personal with a Bonxie!
