Beautiful Birds (9): More Puffins for Pembrokeshire




These puffins were on Bempton Cliffs, Yorkshire (April 2009)
(Bempton gets a mention in the Mirror's best beach guide - under Filey)

Those who have read this blog before will know that I have a soft spot for puffins. I was delighted to discover that the folk who care for Ramsey Island off the Pembrokeshire coast report the arrival of 150 new birds.

This is a somewhat misleading statement on my part, for the new arrivals are plastic puffin decoys, positioned in a bid to lure 'proper' puffins to breed on the island. What a lovely idea!
