Return to the Isle of Puffins
Atlantic Puffin (Fratercula arctica) population and productivity on Lundy Summer 2008
Saunders, N. & Wheatley, S. (2009) Annual Report of the Lundy Field Society 2008 58:77-85
Between April and July 2008 a total of 24 survey visits were made to St Philip's Stone. The study was carried out to ascertain the number of Puffins on Lundy and to determine breeding success. The 2008 survey showed potential breeding activity at five burrows at the St Philip's Stone colony. Feeding was observed at four burrows indicating successful breeding. Chicks were seen at two separate burrows. Two additional breeding sites were identified at Jenny's Cove, where Puffins were observed entering burrows at both sites. Successful breeding is thought to have taken place at one of these sites where feeding was observed at two burrows.
