Another visit to the harbour as I can never resist these birds. There's always some activity and especially now as they are breeding in the holes of the harbour walls.

My second visit to the site but early morning. After being midged quite a bit, as the sun was behind the crags, I managed to get a few shots using a monopod.

After a tip off from a friend I located a nest site where the pair were busy feeding young. I kept my distance using a 500mm lens plus 1.4TC (700mm) and limited my visit to a short period of time. They were happy enough entering to feed regularly so I think it was a reasonable approach.

Second visit to the meadows near the nest site. Mature chicks are now very noisy. Hunting between 5 - 6am at the moment.
