Puffins

This is absolutely nothing to do with weaving but over the Easter holiday we went to South Wales and stayed in a cottage at Aberglasney Gardens. They are extremely beautiful and if you get a chance do go. Joseph the head gardener is lovely.

Anyway it is one of my ambitions to see puffins so we went to Skomer for the day. We were very lucky as we went on Wednesday and 1000 puffins arrived at 6am that day. 1000 is not many for Skomer but it meant I got to see puffins. They are really funny little things especially when coming in to land, it is a case of feet full out and hope for the best and after they have landed there is a sort of shaking of themselves and a very pleased look about them that they managed it and if course they meant to nearly fall over.

So below are some very poor photos of puffins. PJ’s will be better but it will take ages to get them off his computer.
