I did a very brief seabird cruise this weekend which succeded in finding a few of my targets. For starters I got good looks at these little chaps. Atlantic puffin.
I must confess to being slightly underwhelmed by puffins generally. Yes they've got the funny beak and the whole line of sand-eels thing but compared to other seabirds like razorbills or gannets (or for that matter the great auks that once graced our coastline) I can't get as excited about them as the general public seems to.
