Barry, I spent quite some time watching the puffins behaviour, it appeared that some of the Puffins were decoys for when the returning Puffins came back with fish. It seemed to confuse the gulls a little so that food got back to the nest.

Thanks for looking

Puffins can become very addictive SteveSmile

Not been for a few years, but hoping to make it in '14
