Puffin

Fratercula arctica

Description:

Unmistakeable, coastal bird. Black and White plummage, with a bright colourful beak during the breeding season. Seen March to mid August in the UK.

Habitat:

Coastal cliffs

Notes:

On the RSPB Amber list. Photo depicts pair bonding - when one returns from a fishing trip they rub beaks and call to each other, similar to 'eskimo kisses' Shetlanders refer to them as 'Tammy Norris' in the local dialect.
