Puffins - gift ideas for puffin lovers

 

 

Puffins are one of Britain's best loved and most easily recognisable birds with their comical look.  According to the RSPB, they are best spotted at breeding colonies at venues such as the RSPB's Bempton Cliffs (N Yorks) and South Stack (Anglesey) reserves; the Farne Islands and Coquet Island (Northumberland); the Isle of May (off the Fife coast); and the Shetland and Orkney Islands. 

Like so many animals, puffins are not having an easy time of it and they find themselves on the Red List.
