Seabird Spectacular: Wales and Ireland
A two-centre residential workshop, in association with Nature’s Images, led by Chris Gomersall and Ellie Rothnie. Staying on Skomer Island in Pembrokeshire, and visiting an island gannetry in south-east Ireland.
Amongst the greatest wildlife spectacles to be found around the coastlines of Britain and Ireland are our breeding seabird colonies, and combining two island locations just 40 miles or so apart but accessible from Ireland and Wales respectively, this trip looks to cover as many species and settings as possible. Our Irish island hosts a fantastic gannet colony, along with multiple auk species, kittiwakes and choughs – all very accessible and with specially arranged early morning and late evening crossings scheduled we will be able to work in the very best light. Back in Wales, we will be staying on one of the UK’s premier islands for puffins, again allowing us the opportunity to photograph in the optimum lighting conditions – evening lighting here is amongst the best for photographing these enigmatic birds anywhere in the UK. We’ll also have the opportunity to experience the night time visit of the elusive manx shearwater.
