Rock home

It’s entertaining to spend a day on the cliffs with a flask of tea and a local cheese sandwich on home-made bread when there are Puffins about. It’s heart-warming to see them bringing fish in to their Puffling.

Their nests are sometimes in earth burrows, often taken over from Rabbits which have abandoned a hole with the precipitous drop. However, sometimes their nests are in rock clefts and deep in rock scree. This Puffin is checking the coast is clear to leave its Puffling safe and secure.

320 million years of evolution separate me from this Puffin but we share the same views on keeping our children safe.
