Saltee islands again, after last year (see here).
And again, we were lucky with the weather: after a gloomy morning we had a good day for picture taking.
We were blessed with a sunny(ish) day, so we managed to dry up quiclky after the boat ride. I was a bit windy and I ended up soaked. At least for the first 10 minutes 🙂 .
After that we moved to the the first nesting placve we were going to visit:
Unfortunately we didn’t see as many puffins as last year 😦
After some time in the howling wind we moved to the gannets’ nesting place.
After the last rocky bit (which was a bit of a challenge for somebody) we got the the nests. You can smell it long before you see it…
And that was it for the day: unfortunately we couldn’t stay for very long and soon had to go back to the boats (which turned out to be an adventure itself).
We’ll be back next year 🙂 !!
