Farne Islands

This year at our university, a "Wildlife Photographer's Society" was established, in which we could get together and go places in order to experience wildlife. It was decided that a perfect way to round up the academic year was to visit Bass Rock, a small island on the east coast of Scotland which is home to a huge colony of gannets. However due to strong wind the boat was unable to sail, so we headed down the coast and went to the Farne Islands instead. After the severe disappointment of being unable to get to Bass Rock, the Farne Islands made up for it, with its large variety of sea birds.
