The Farne Islands or not!


Inspired by the intrepid Bill Oddie and the ever delicious Kate Humble, Major Dickie has brought me to Seahouses with a view to zipping over to The Farne Islands to see the pretty little Puffins.

Well!  You may think the weather in the North was great over the Bank Holiday but the wind here is blowing “Dogs off Chains”  as these seafaring peoples are minded to say!   And come to think of it I haven’t seen many chained dogs to they must be right.

As for a mad dash to the islands – no chance.  A case of “So near yet so Farne away”

Perhaps if the wind takes to ‘puffin’ rather than ‘blowin’ we will be in with a chance. 

In the meantime The Major is lapping up Spring Watch each evening and following Kate’s Coal Tits with eager anticipation.
