Sunny Saltee Islands

We were seriously lucky with an exceptional day on Great Saltee. The Saltee Islands, comprising of the Great and Little Saltee, are located approximately 5km off the coast of Co Wexford. The island is privately owned, but is a wildlife refuge that can be accessed during the day via a boat from Kilmore Quay. It is famous for its puffin population but unfortunately we were a little early to witness their annual visit to the island which occurs in June/July.

I’ll need to borrow a monster 500mm for the next time, my 70-200mm just didn’t cut it for wildlife closeups.
