The Auks, like Puffins, are fun birds. They congregate in large numbers on cliffs and islands, skim across the water or fly higher like rockets, and carry fish to their chicks. They are a treat to watch and photograph. So, I thought to start a thread dedicated to them, beginning with some shots from the Farne Islands, off the coast at Seahouses in Northumberland, which we visited this week. Here are two shots of Puffins flying back to their burrows with sand eels (taken on 5DIV with 400mm DO II).
