puffins are possibly my favourite bird. They are incredibly tough and have very un-birdlike like behaviour in some ways - for example their nests are actually earth burrows in the cliff-edge, exactly like rabbits. They are also fantastically fast and difficult to photograph, which is why they are not flying in many of the puffin photos that you often see. One minute there's a puffin and the next minute there's no puffin, or vice versa. I've been three times to Bempton Cliffs to get Puffin photographs and they were only visible on one of those trips. But on other days, usually when I'm not there there are hundreds of little buggers.
