PS (Puffins & Sika)

Postscript to the May Lundy trip are these photos of Puffins & Sika deer taken with the Long Tom. The long tom is my Canon 600mm f4 weighting in at nearly 5 ½ kilos, it is virtually impossible to hand hold except for short periods and although it is bitingly sharp is a class one, […]

Maytime, the early boat from Bideford, despite getting up at minus-saturday to make the 8am sailing you are rewarded with a few extra hours of island time.

Mountaineering monkeys and shy Sika

December 10, 2016

Well not exactly monkeys but sure footed Lundy goats, who seem to defy the normal laws of gravity. They somehow perch on sheer granite cliffs with a laid-back approach of a Beatnik in a coffee shop; and all to munch on some tasty lichen. Mmmmmmm.

We were all prepared for a stormy visit to the island on the the last trip of the year. Late November last year was […]
