The Speedy Puffin by nitsch The Speedy Puffin by nitsch
On your marks... get set... GO!!! This little guy looked like he was trying to set the new Puffin 100 metre sprint world record! :lol:

He had obviously heard that there were plenty of sand eels swimming by and wanted to be first down to the sea! Enjoy! :D

Atlantic Puffin - Fratercula arctica
Length 30cm
