I shift around on the wet grass, sliding around at the top of the cliff, holding onto tussocks of grass so I don’t plummet down onto the rocks below. I get the angle right so I can catch a few puffins flying onto the rock stack

It’s good that my house is out of focus in the background so you can’t see what a ruin it is.
