Return to the Isle of Puffins
Puffin sightings on Lundy, 2013 & 2014
Transcripts

  • During the winter of 2013-2014 a series of severe storms crossed the North Atlantic and passed over Britain. These storms resulted in the deaths of large numbers of seabirds. In February 2014 around 30,000 Puffins washed ashore, dead or dying, on the coasts of Portugal, Spain, France, and southern Britain (Harris 2014)
  • Lundy's Puffins are thought to follow similar migration patterns as those on the nearby island of Skomer (77km, NNE of Lundy)
  • Geolocator studies of 27 Puffins from Skomer showed that: "In August most birds migrate away from the colony, most in a NWW direction, some as far as Greenland, some more locally, whilst some move southwards towards France and Biscay. In autumn they move northwards or north eastwards into the North Atlantic, and then later in the winter they move southwards, some as far as the Mediterranean, before returning (from a variety of directions) to the colony in spring." Guilford et al. (2011).
  • This suggests that Puffins breeding on Lundy may have been affected by this seabird "wreck".
  • In June and July
  • Harris, M.P. (2014) "Aging Atlantic Puffins (Fratercula arctica) in summer and winter" Seabird 27:22-40
