I've been inundated with photos and only having so many hours in the day, I just don't get round to doing Blogs often enough. Before the Puffin breeding season is completely over, I'd better share these photos quick! 

These photos are all on the Isle of May - on 16 May 2017.

Puffins tend to sit on raised ground facing the wind. That way they can make a quick escape should danger threaten.

Usually that means that most of the time they are on the West / SW facing bits.

They seem VERY tame, but one wrong move and they will be off.

Puffins have lots of cute appeal, but my favourite seabirds are razorbills!

I find them difficult to photograph in flight, they tend to be flying low, so you don't get much warning.
