Wheeling flypast's of puffins

The wheeling flypast's of puffins are an experience not to be missed. Nor is running the gauntlet of hundreds of angry mother arctic terns, all convinced you are out to harm their chicks , as you make your way from the jetty up onto the Island. The newly hatched Eider Ducklings are so cute and fluffy too.
