Description

On many of their smaller island nesting locations Atlantic Puffins can be very approachable.  However, on this occasion I was able to use a telephoto lens for this close-up picture to ensure there was no danger of treading on any of the birds nesting burrows.  I would have felt terrible if I had collapsed a burrow and trapped a bird inside.  The colourful beak is an appendage grown specially for the nesting season and once the young fledge and the birds leave the colony, the bright covering is shed to leave a ‘normal’ style of beak for the rest of the year.
