The little clown with hidden depths.

The puffin is Iceland’s most common bird and is best known for its looks: a majestic beak, brightly coloured legs and an upright posture that may conjure up the image of a miniature priest or a clown. This clumsy-looking bird is remarkably swift on its short wings and is a formidable diver, as well as being sociable and faithful to its mate and its breeding colony. Its looks and behaviour have won it many admirers and great popularity.
