The Puffin is an odd and charming bird, instantly recognisable. Yet few people have met a Puffin face to face, or seen a Puffin colony.

This delightful book explores the life of the Puffin in words and pictures, discusses the interaction between humans and Puffins and provides details of Iceland´s best puffin-watching locations. It is based upon reasearch by ornithologists, information from birdwatchers and hunters, along with the observations of the author himself, who is renowned for is expert knowledge of the birds of Iceland. Many of the photos in this book are unique and show aspects of Puffin behaviour which have not been photograophed before.
