Puffin in flight

Puffin in flight, Homeward bound

Bird behaviour category winner, Natures Best 2009

I spent a week on the Treshnish Isles, a small offshore island photographing a range of different seabird species. My main target was the Puffin, these birds can be very tame and confiding and after spending some time with them I can see why it is one of the nation’s favourite birds. I took over 2000 images of puffins in flight but only a small percentage were in focus as they are so fast in flight. This one was heading straight towards its burrow with its catch to feed its young chick. It is my all time favourite image.
