The comical and colourful faces of puffins have earned them the popular name 'clowns of the sea'.
On land, they waddle and hop amongst tussocks and rocks to and from their burrows.
But, once in the air, they wheel and turn with great agility while underwater they use their wings to sail through the water.
In this book, the author portrays the multifarious activities of these lovable seabirds during their breeding season and reveals how they live and survive at high altitudes.

Review by TheoClarke
Masterly collection of photographs with intelligent commentary on the biology of puffins and their habitats. My pleasure in the book would be much enhanced by a hardcover; I particularly object to double page spreads across 'perfect' binding.
