I was out on the cliffs this morning and I spotted 2 puffins on Crooked Carr. That may not sound very exciting, but we have spent most of the seabird season seeing not a single puffin, however hard we looked, not even on the water. So I was fearing the worst - that puffins have ceased to breed at St Abb's Head. We have seen more on the water in recent weeks, but these are most probably failed breeders from the Farne Islands or the Isle of May. But to have them up on the cliffs is a sign of possible breeding. I even managed to get a couple of pics. Liza.
