Skomer Island

Skomer is an island located less than a mile off the beautiful Pembrokeshire coast in South Wales, UK; Skomer is truly a wonderful place to visit for the day or stay overnight.

Well known for its Puffins, yet there is so much more to the bird paradise including Manx Shearwaters, Dolphins, Harbour Porpoises, Atlantic Grey Seal, Razorbills, Gannets, Fulmars and the unique Skomer Vole. The island is surrounded by some of the richest waters for wildlife off the British Isles from delightfully coloured sea slugs to magnificent cetaceans.

When visiting you will see thousands of puffins literally meters away from you as shown in the pictures below which I took during my visit to the island.


They like having pictures taken:

These are sociable animals hence the big group below...


There is also other wildlife on Skomer, see the rabbit appearing here:


Skomer isn't just about birds, the cliffs are impressive:
