Sumburgh Puffin by lifeat60degrees

Sumburgh Puffin

I usually wait until the first May Bank Holiday Monday before posting my first Puffin photo of the year but given the poor forecast for the day and the fine evening we headed to Sumburgh Head to see if there were many about. Pleased to say the place was heaving with them. Good time to see them as they are just now pairing off so none in the burrows yet and no need for all day feeding. Plenty Guillemots and Razorbills as well.
Such a beautiful bird, I've never seen one in real life. Great shot. Fav
