Wildlife Highlights - Puffin

Anglesey has a good population of puffins, and one of the best places to see these charismatic birds is at South Stack.  They are instantly recognisable by their tangerine coloured feet and large, brightly coloured bills, which they use to great effect for carrying sand eels – one of their main sources of food.  They can carry many of these small fish at one time – 60 is the current standing record!  Puffins are communal birds that excavate burrows to nest in.  Whilst they are ungainly on land, they are excellent swimmers, spending up to half of their lives at sea.
