One of the best wildlife sites in southern Britain, Skomer is especially good for puffins and my visit was timed to coincide with them bringing sandeels to feed their chicks. Staying on the island, we made the best use of sunrise and sunset light for both birds and landscapes. In all, 40 species of birds were recorded, including three auks, three gulls, two waders, two owls and five Corvids. A particular highlight was photographing Manx Shearwaters returning to their burrows in the middle of the night.
