Seabird Cities


Visiting Scotland was my first ever opportunity to see the likes of Gannets, Razorbills, Guillemots and Kittiwakes up close and these birds really did a great job of impressing me! I was absolutely blown away by the size of these seabird colonies, i know that many have seen such spectacles before but this was new to me and a site i'll never forget! These images are a collection taken from the boat around Bass Rock (had an awful day weather wise and could not land on the rock itself) and the brilliant Aberdeenshire RSPB Fowlsheugh reserve. Both days were grey, wet and windy which presented a challenge when it came to photography but i am pleased with my results and will never forget the sight...and smell of thousands of seabirds who visit our coastlines for the summer to have their chicks, amazing....
