Excellent Puffin image. I've recently returned from Bempton Cliffs -
the nearest I could get was about 100 yds. I would have loved to get
a shot as good as this.

No matter what they are doing or not doing, these wee characters make such appealing subjects, Bill: a fine shot at 500mm.
I like how one seems to be standing guard over the squatting neighbour.
