Farne Islands 'puffin census' begins

Help

A puffin "census" has started on the Farne Islands in Northumberland, with National Trust rangers surveying how many breeding pairs of the birds live there.

The count, which takes three months, takes place every five years. The last survey indicated numbers had fallen by a third.
