On the 7th June a visitor to The Inner Farne killed an Artic Tern. I could not believe what i have heard. The man decided to take a cane from the ground which was marking birds and take a swipe that the bird hitting it on the wing thus killing it and leaving 3 chicks to fend for themselves. This is the birds home and not the man's and all the Tern was doing was pecking him because he was near her young. Any mother would protect her young. So he killed one bird with a stick what a man eh. He did not just kill a bird he killed the family as the young chicks will not survive either. This man should never be aloud back to The Farnes or the village again. This is my living, my home and the birds so please in future don't come back.

Birds Everywhere

Another amazing day at The Farne Islands. Seas were calm and the sun was shining. Lots of the chicks have been born now and some are really big. The Inner Farne is buzzing at the moment with birds flying everywhere. If anyone has not been before then you must go before all the birds leave. You will just be amazed as i still am every year.
