Please bring ideally tripod, filters and have a working knowledge of your camera would be useful, though you will be with people I'm sure happy enough to share advice.

    Good luck everybody with this. I was actually planning on heading up to the Farne Islands from London this weekend but I called the Islands and they advised that winds were expected to be strong and boats out to the islands would be unlikely to go ahead. Would love to see some of the photos from this trip as I hope be heading up there myself sometime soon.
