Puffin heading home

 Heading Home 
On this visit to the Farnes Islands, in May 2015, we were just a little early to see the puffins bringing in sand eels. Nevertheless there were plenty of puffins flying in, and I spent a happy hour trying (mostly unsucessfully!) to capture images as they shot past. This one was carrying in some vegetation - presumably heading for it's burrow with nesting material - which I thought makes an interesting change from the more usual eels shot. The Longstone Lighthouse is visible in the background.
