    Not been out in a while with the camera, with the rugby season started half my weekends are now taken up with games, but it was good to get back out to RSPB Fowlsheugh for the last time this year.

    1. One of the very few Northern Fulmars left around the cliff edges.

    With the Majority of the seabirds gone from the cliff edges, this pretty much ends my 6 months stint at RSPB Fowlsheugh for 2017. Will be back in February 2018 when the seabirds start to return. I've managed to document the birds from arriving, pairing up, laying eggs, babies and now flying off back to sea. Been a great place to practice photographing birds in flight.

    Great work on all but that first one with the water sparkling in the background and the perfect framing is just wonderful.

    Great stuff. I wish there was a spot around where I live that you can that kind of perspective on birds.

    I really like the bokeh from the water glimmer in #1 best. Nice set.
