Muse of the Month July 2016; It must be Puffin O'Clock

10th July 2016
It shouldn't be any surprise that having spent two glorious days on Lunga, Treshnish Isles, Scotland, that I have a few (hundred) photos of Puffins and seabirds to now literally wade through.


Late June / July is certainly the best time to see Puffins. The later in the day you can be with them the better, as evening time brings even more in from their sea faring, fishing, missions. Regardless of the hour and weather conditions it always seemed to be Puffin O' clock. There was never a dull moment as their natural, comedic timing of meet and greet with the occasional rough and tumble antics, kept me constantly entertained.



It was certainly Puffins to the left of me, Puffins to the right of me, stuck in the middle of Puffins where ever you look!

Seeing so many together made me ask the question..what is the collective name for Puffins?

Apparently when out bobbing on the sea, it's a raft of puffins, on land there are three options: a parliament of puffins, an improbability of puffins and lastly, my absolute favourite, a circus of puffins.



More Puffin photos to go up on the website shortly, along with some rather snapping Razorbills and other island residents.

If you ever get the chance to go I can assure you its worth the boat trip and the hike up the cliff, puffing of another sort comes into effect during that!
Seriously all you will ever remember is having the Puffin time of your life!



With special thanks to Neil McIntyre, Lisa, Raymond, Jeff and Linda for their company and most importantly the laughter..sorry if I was a little over excited at times and way too chatty!
