A trip to Skomer

Today a trip to Skomer! We boarded the 11am ferry with 15 or so other passengers for our short 10 min crossing, the sea being really calm. On the approach to Skoma we saw Puffin in large numbers flying around, or just swimming in groups on water. After a short talk by the Wardens, we were off to see what we could see toward the center of the island, photographing the trigpoint on the way and walked toward The Wick. This was the area that we saw the most puffins in their burrows – brilliant. While strolling along this area we also saw choughs flying around. We stopped and had our picnic lunch and continued before deciding to head back through the centre toward the old 19th century farm buildings and the landing stage in hope more puffin pictures Saw some on the water only, but great walk anyway. The boat very crowded on way back but it was only a short journey. All in all, a great trip and well worth doing. Trig point on Skomer marking its height above sea level at
