"These Puffins were nesting on Skellig Michael off the west coast of ireland. They are a small bird and it is a wonder to see them at such close quarters with their brightly coloured beaks and comical flight. Puffins nest in burrows in a colourful world of sea campion, thrift, lichens and blue sea. A single egg hatches after 39 days and the chick flies when about 38 days old.It will breed after 5 years at sea. Calls at the colony are deep growling and crooning notes."
