Atlantic puffin

At Bempton Cliffs, there are quite a few puffins, but not always easy to photograph.  This one flew low over the cliff tops and was obscured at times by vegetation.  I’ve put it up here because I like the effect and, particularly, the image below which was shot through the vegetation yet managed to retain much of the shape and colour.  There are loads of little information boards about the puffins.  The one I liked best was the one that told me the largest known number of sand eels to be crammed into a puffins mouth was 83!  Not sure how they counted them but who am I to cast doubt on such an interesting fact.
