Tory Island - (Part 10)

On Monday week ago, I took you over to the other side of the island and today I am showing you some more shots of it.  I pass through West Town and then you will see a flatter part with a small lake before heading up the steep climb to the top of the cliffs.  The photographs are not in order today however I am sure you can work it out.

This green area was were some of the Puffins were nesting. 
(more about that on Saturday’s post with video).

I counted over 400 Puffins in the water where I stood and there must have been at least 100 in their burrows.

The houses are well maintained on the island and 
I found this Rooster behind one of them.

This is West town.

Ah another little dog.

In the distance this is the lake I mentioned to you however I will show you those photograph at a later date (possibly next week).

It is lovely to see Rock Doves in their natural surroundings. 
I hope you all made with me up to the top of the cliffs!!

Not to near the edge please.  
Oh dear, I am one to talk!!

These are Fulmar nesting on these ledges however you will see them better on the video at the end of this post.

I hope you thought the climb was worth coming up to see the wonderful views.

CLICK HERE if the video does not appear.

Although as you heard on the video I was leaving Tory Island however there is still plenty I have to show you still.

Thanks for visiting and also to those who leave comments.
