Skomer Part 1 - The first voyage
|A Manx Shearwater|
I have recently returned from my annual pilgrimage to the island of Skomer, having enjoyed a fabulous three days of birding along the Pembrokeshire coastline with my "Three Amigo" friends Paul and Nicola.
We had been planning for the trip for ages. Leading up to our trip the days, hours and seconds seemed to pass ever so slowly. It's then just typical once you end up going on your trip it seems to be over way too quickly - time certainly flies when you are enjoying yourself and in good company.
This year we had arranged three boat trips through Pembrokeshire Boat Trips
- Day 1 - Seabird Spectacular
- Day 2 - Skomer
- Day 3 - Grassholm
