Puffins on Bempton Cliffs
Click on image to enlarge
Location: Bempton Cliffs RSPB, East Riding of Yorkshire
Puffins are any of three small species of alcids (auks) in the bird genus Fratercula with a brightly coloured beak during the breeding season. They breed in large colonies on coastal cliffs or offshore islands, nesting in crevices among rocks or in burrows in the soil.
The puffins were hard to spot amongst the hundreds of thousand of gannets and kittiwakes but a scan with the binoculars found them eventually.
