Thanks for the kind words @ Peter Connan - and thanks for the likes everyone.  

 

There were a few Skimmers feeding and that one shot out of 3 dozen + photos came out...

Here is one I dug out of my archives and watermarked:

 

Sooty Shearwater (Ardenna griseus - formerly Puffinus griseus) taking flight from the Gulf Stream over the "Charleston Bump".  This is an underwater seamount that deflects the Gulf Stream and causes productive upwellings and eddies.

Artic Tern

 

I thought I'd post these shots from a couple of years ago as I'll be heading back to the Farne islands again in June. Really hoping for better weather this time.

Another Arctic Tern. Thinking about dive bombing me no doubt.

 

Farne Islands, UK.

Back there in a couple of weeks and really hoping for a bit of sunshine

If an experience is amazing enough to be "once in a lifetime," I want to do it every year.
