Isle of May puffins

Stock Photography By Adam Brooker

Around 90,000 Atlantic puffins (Fratercula arctica) breed on the Isle of May, Firth of Forth, Scotland. The 1-mile-long isle is a National Nature Reserve and an important breeding colony for these and other seabirds. Puffins spend much of their time fishing for small shoaling fish, such as sandeels, but come onshore to lay their eggs in burrows dug in soft soil in April-May. Once the eggs hatch, the adults bring beaks full of fish to the burrow to feed the pufflings, which fledge in June-July.
