Puffins- We are just back from a wonderful couple of days bird-watching at Bempton Cliffs. Puffins are struggling to find food at many of their traditional sites but we saw a few more this year than on other recent trips. They are difficult to photograph in flight, with 400 wing-beats a minute, and reaching 88km an hour, so these took some time to get as they flew in to their nesting ledges out of sight beneath me, orange feet acting as rudders. Conditions: Steaming hot and sunny Temperature: Max 26- Min 15C.
