A weekend in Wales! 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁷󠁬󠁳󠁿

Wow! What a wildlife filled weekend!

Last week my cousin @leahpinkphotography and I headed down to Pembrokeshire on Friday, ready for a weekend of sea birds and birds of prey!

On the Saturday we went to the absolutely stunning Skomer Island, to photograph the thousands of puffins who breed there every year! We were so lucky with the weather, as the day before and day after it absolutely tipped it down and was incredibly windy. But thankfully we picked the perfect day and it was lovely and bright!

We spent hours watching the puffins flying in with mouths stuffed full with sand eels then running into their burrow!

And we also had great views of Fulmars, razorbills, guillemots (and even a guillemot chick!!).

And then, we drove up north to visit the Red Kite feeding centre Gigrin Farm!

Gigrin farm is the whole reason red kites aren’t extinct in the UK – after having only one breeding pair in the area, they started feeding them to give them a helping hand. And now nearly 30 years later, there are hundreds!
