Kittiwake with Young

 

Clinging to narrow ledges on the cliff face of the Farne Islands, the Kittiwake protects her young.

 

There were also many Guillemots on the cliffs.

Whilst there were also European Shag with their young on the islands.

Terrific stuff Les: I'm amazed you got that close to the nest!
Les Auld: About 18 inches below me on the cliff face Chris, the only thing between me and the birds was a bit of a wire fence. Thanks for the comment.
What an experience this would have been. You managed some excellent shots too.
Les Auld: It was indeed Mary, thanks for the comment.
It's a great place for bird photography - I've a very old pic I took on the Bass Rock years ago:http://tomwilson.shutterchance.com/photoblog/Gannet_and_chicks_/
Les Auld: It is indeed Tom, and the Bass Rock is on my list as well. Thanks for the comment.

Another three fine shots Les. (We are away to Minehead on a group holiday next week, the WSR is booked for Friday, including a Cream tea, sounds good to me.)
