Back from the Farne Islands

I'm just back from a trip to Northumberland (UK) where I visited the famous seabird colonies on the Farne Islands. Here: the complete Northumberland trip report.
Above two pics taken by me; the stunning Atlantic Puffin (above) and the rare Roseate Tern (below). Other photos are available on the report page.

Local patch: today a Common Swallowtail was gliding in the gardens. Nothing more to report...I haven't started yet to check the bird activity...
