After finishing the Causeway Coast Trail I searched for puffins on Rathlin Island. To my delight I met one that was larger than life! Haha! I captured an image off a telescope and then saw a pair close enough for my zoom.

What an incredible noise! We went to @rspb_love_nature bird sanctuary on Rathlin Island yesterday.  The most amazing gathering of seabirds, who are nesting on steep cliff faces.  There were so@many including kittiwakes, guillemots, gannets and best of all Puffins! (My husband had a telescopic lens on his camera, so once he’s developed his photographs at home I’ll post a few Puffins here!) It was the first time I’ve seen Puffins and I was completely enchanted, they’d so puffiny, those stunning beach and orange feet, and their chicks are called... pufflings, isn’t that fabulous? #scrumptioussummer #101thingsthatmakemesmile #seabirds #puffins #rathlinisland #northernireland

What a brilliant book! And such a fabulous place, I saw my first real Puffins today (and they look like those birds on the covers of our childhood Puffin books!) I know you shouldn’t say it about real creatures, but they really are adorably cute!

So ... I was meant to go to Rathlin this weekend, the island in the distance in this first photo taken during a brief break in the weather a couple of weeks ago at Ballintoy. You can also see Rathlin on a framed map in pics 2 and 3 which I have hanging in my hallway. However... it is tipping down and with the forecast less than favourable we've decided to postpone! You see Rathlin is 6 miles by boat from Northern Ireland's mainland across the notoriously unpredictable Sea of Moyle which we would rather not negotiate in this weather! It's famous for a number of things not least: 1) its Puffin colony near the West Lighthouse;  2) Marconi's first ever successfully transmitted radio signals across water anywhere in the world from the East Lighthouse to Ballycastle on the mainland on 6 July 1898. Working on behalf of Lloyd's Insurers, he installed a wireless link to allow swift announcements of successful trans-Atlantic crossings by Lloyd's ships;  3) Robert the Bruce who, during his struggle for the Scottish throne, fled across the short 11 mile distance from Scotland following his defeat by the English in 1306. It was in a cave on Rathlin, while watching a spider make several attempts to bridge a gap between 2 rocks to complete its web, that Bruce drew renewed courage to make a further attempt at the crown, eventually succeeding at the Battle of Bannockburn. Of course there are many other interesting facts about Rathlin but I'll fill you in on more when I eventually get over to it. In the meantime, here endeth your history lesson for now!
