LATEST IMAGES - THE FARNES 5
While not resident on the Farnes Gannets pass close to the Islands on their way from and back their nesting and feeding sites. The nearest nesting sites are Bempton Cliffs in Yorkshire and Bass Rock in the Firth of Forth.
GANNETS IN FLIGHT
COMMON TERN CALLING
A few Common Tern were also seen on Inner Farne. This one was sitting on a National Trust recruitment board and called when anybody walked past.
SANDWICH TERN WITH FOOD
Inner Farne also has a Sandwich Tern colony. This is a little too far away to photograph but good flight shots are possible as the Terns fly backwards and forwards feeding their young.
