On day trip to Farnes. Ran the gauntlet of arctic tern attacks to get from boat to lighthouse. Woolly hat wasn't enough to soften impact.. will take hard hat next time. Zillions of birds including sandwich and common terns as well as the arctics.

Visible from seahouses but no time for a physical visit today and unlikely to be in the area any time soon.

No time to go out to the islands today, but the two Farne lighthouses are clearly visible from the Bamburgh to Seahouses road. Dozens of visitors visible on the Inner Farne island - wonder how many of them realised they were standing next to a trigpoint!

The Farne Island lighthouses Inner Farne lighthouse is the white one on the right.

Closer of the Farne Island lighthouses - from a stroll on the beach near Seahouses.

Managed to pick a rare day to have the island virtually to myself. Apart from the resident wardens only one other day tripper came ashore with me. The views up and down the Northumberland coast really were exceptional, and inland to the Cheviots too. A particularly choppy crossing brought me back to Seahouses, but it just all added to the adventure.

Boat trip from Seahouses. Too early for many puffins on land, but a few rafts of them on the sea around the islands.
