Gone Fishing

At this time of the year it is crucial for the puffin to regularly go fishing in order to collect as many sand eels, herring or sprats to ensure the survival of their demanding and hungry pufflings.  These shots were taken on inner Farne and as you can see the bigger beakful of fish the better.

      1. Puffins never seem to make it easy, we had my daughter throwing up and my parents grumbling for two hours but as soon as that first puffin with a beak full of fish was spotted, it didn’t matter! 🙂
