Puffin With a Beak Full of Sand eels

Puffin with a beak full of Sand eels, taken on Staple Island bird sanctuary in Northumberland. Puffins have an extra bone at the tip of their jaw specifically to prevent fish from falling out.

During the summertime around 150,000 breeding pairs of seabirds flock to the Farne Islands to nest. With such huge numbers crammed onto these tiny islands they are undoubtedly one of the best places in the UK to get close to sea birds.

About Puffins:

The puffin is one of Britain’s most iconic and best loved birds with its distinctive black head and brightly-coloured bill. Its comical appearance has earned it the nickname ‘clown of the sea’.
