Razorbills, Guillemots and Puffins are the big three superstars of the Lundy Island seabird cities. Their distinctive black and white colouring and upright stance remind us of the the worlds favourite bird; the penguin, although they are far from related. Like penguins however they are slightly awkward on land having largely sacrificed mobility, and to […]

Another quick trip to the island on a solo mission to get some shots of prime-time nesting sea birds in full swing. When you book a June trip the last thing that you expect is a helicopter ride over to the island because of bad weather, but we live in worrying times for our climate. […]

They are organised in family groups of ten to fifteen consisting of one stag (mature male) and the rest consisting of hinds and their offspring (calves). They are timid animals but on a small island they are easy to find and watch, especially in winter when […]
