Puffins still have to land whichever way the wind is blowing. That’s tricky, because ideally they would like to land into the wind. That simply doesn’t work if the wind is coming directly onto the land.
Some Puffins are having an easier time of this blustery weather as the in and out nature of the coast means they can still land in a sensible direction.
Some, however, have to really push it to land sideways.
Despite being small and looking a little ungainly, Puffins are supremely adept at controlling their landing.
They’re a pleasure to watch.
