It’s been an unusual summer in more ways than one way but hardest to bare has been the lack of opportunist day, and camping trips, to Lundy Island.

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. […]
