Handa Island is a nature reserve off the west coast of Scotland. I’d never heard of it until this summer when I decided I wanted to see a puffin. These beautiful wee birds tend to leave Scotland late July so at the beginning of August I knew there was a chance I’d be disappointed. Half way round the island I’d accepted that puffin spotting would have to wait until next year – and then there he was.
What a treat!
Good grief, it’s lovely here right now. You know, I’ve always preferred the colours of autumn, the signs of spring and the sharpness of winter but this year… Well, this year summer has completely won me over.
I got a new camera at Christmas time. For weeks it was grey and dark and I had little opportunity to get to know my new camera properly. That all changed this weekend.
Think I’m in love.
