Everyone loves Puffins and that’s because they are photogenic, quirky, have a rainbow beak and exquisite facial feathers, but their most endearing characteristic is that they seem to be dumber than dumb, in a sort of Charlie Chaplin type way (not in a stupid type way; most endearing. However they are not the only birds on the island and despite their miraculous recovery from single figures to over 250 this year, Puffins are small in numbers compared to Guillemots and Razorbills, who have their own devotees, but there is another bird living mainly around the village, that is the subject to a massive study; the humble Lundy sparrow. Isolated, with probably a small gene pool and thriving despite the harsh winter, this is a photo tribute to one of the islands cheeky favourites.
