⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ N U F F I N B U T C H U F F I N P U F F I N⁠ S ⁠⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Well, that's not strictly true. As you walk around this island you're under constant attack from a gazillion arctic terns, being hosed down with poo and unable to breath properly due to the putrid stench that literally burns your nostrils - all the while trying not to step on nests that have been carefully built right along the walkways!⁠ ⁠⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ We go back every year and simply wouldn't have it any other way. The pecked head and burnt nostrils are worth bearing witness to this incredible bird extravaganza⁠! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⁠⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Welcome to the Farne Islands!⁠ 🖤 ⁠⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ And if you decide to visit make sure you sail with Andrew and the gang at Serenity (@farne_islands) - they're the best and they also look after your 4-legged friends on the boat while you're being pecked to death on the island!⁠ ⁠⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ This is Pedro, by the way. He's a pro model that chatted away while I positioned my off-camera light (the sun) and popped off a few shots for his portfolio. He's off to Iceland in a few weeks for another modelling shoot - hope he gets himself a yellow jacket for dem waterfall shots 😁
