PUF­FIN

Bird Watching (UK) - - Your Birding Month -

Ev­ery­body’s favourite auk, the Puf­fin, is an ex­tremely fa­mil­iar, yet cu­ri­ously ex­otic look­ing beauty in a fam­ily packed with hand­some birds. They are smaller than many ex­pect, but un­mis­tak­able with their pale face and enor­mous colourful bill. Un­like our other auks, these are bur­row nesters, so need grassy slopes, usu­ally near or on the top of cliffs. They are fa­mously tame and ap­proach­able and are sim­ply su­perb birds to watch up close and per­sonal. Go meet a Puf­fin!
