Lovely photos, Richard. When we went to Bempton Cliffs to see puffins we could only see one!

Bet you saw lots of Gannets though ?
Gannets are a bird I haven't had a close encounter with yet. Seen them a lot at Dungeness, but too far out to get a decent photo.

Lovely photos Richard. We've been to Skomer, well worth the trip, it is on our list of places to go back to amongst many others. Don't be offended but the Curlews are actually Whimbrel, they have a prominent eye stripe & the bill is shorter than a Curlew. Lovely bird to see, we've not seen one for about 3 years now. Hope the op went well.
