Coastguard

Another wonderful day spent with the Puffins on the Treshnish Islands in the Outer Hebredes

 

An unmistakable bird with its black back and white underparts, and distinctive black head with large pale cheeks and a tall, flattened, brightly-coloured bill. Its comical appearance is heightened by its red and black eye-markings and bright orange legs. Used as a symbol for books and other items, this clown among seabirds is one of the world's favourite birds. With half of the UK population at only a few sites it is an Amber List species.

 

Thank you for looking at my photographs and for any comments it is much appreciated
