Puffins

Back to Gallery

These delightful little birds are most evident from May to the end of July.  We see them on Canna, Staffa and Lunga in local waters.

Puffins are real exhibitionists who turn up on the cliffs when the human visitors arrive so they can pose for the cameras!

When flying they look like clockwork birds, very ungainly - but we are told they are better adapted for swimming under water.

A truly worthwhile visit as they appear very tame and one can get very close.  Probably why when you see your first Puffin you will be surprised at how small they are.

Puffins are in their colonies to breed from spring to early summer. They are usually away at sea again by late July or early August.
