Puffin flying in with sand eels

By gill_f  
This pic was taken very soon after the one posted yesterday. The grey clouds have been replaced by blue sky. Camera settings had to keep being adjusted as the sun came in and out. The puffins appeared to be flying in circuits, watching out for the chance to come down to their burrows with food for the pufflings. If the gulls were on the floor near their burrow they didn't land - they flew round again.

What a wonderful sight Gill. The gulls are thieves regarding the sand eels, so I image they have to avoid them if they can. Pam
Excellent in flight capture, great photography, Gill.
