A young Puffin

Juvenile Puffin

We came across this young puffin about 2 miles north of Mouls island this afternoon.

A very encouraging sight as I'd watched adults carrying sandeels to the nest earlier in the summer.

Hopefully this is a bird from that island and thus a successful breeding result for Cornish puffins.

It was spending a lot of time peering in the water and scuttled across the surface away from us which looked like it was still unable to fly yet.
