Hi Garreth,

Well spotted and now you have an image of a Puffin to use as a yard stick for the next time you are lucky enough to spot one. I guess you were in a similar position to me when I captured my one and only shot of a Kingfisher, no tripod, hand held and ended up with a slightly blurred image which unfortunatly there's not a lot you can do about. There are things you could try with the "Emboss filter" if you have PS which will fix a very slight motion blur but I don't think you will get a sharp image in this case. Garreth what I'd try first is the "Shadows & highlights" adjustment if you have it or in "levels" darken the midtones a little and erase from certain areas until you've strengthened the image to your liking.

Well spotted Garreth and I look forward to your next Puffin capture.

Take care
