MS Oldenberg docking at Lundy island

Puffin Island

The island of Lundy is an ideal home for many seabirds due to its high cliffs and the surrounding fish-rich seas. In fact, Lundy is the old Norse word for "puffin island".

Sitting  off the North Devon coast at the mouth of the Bristol Channel, Lundy's cliffs were indeed once speckled with thousands of the distinctive looking black and white puffins with striking, brightly coloured heads and bills. Today there are just a few pairs of birds but Lundy's association with the puffin is so strong that just the thought of glimpsing one of these birds is enough to attract hundreds of visitors to the island every year.

Brett Westwood joins the wildlife warden on the island in the hope of sighting one of this year's breeding pairs and to hear what's being done to ensure this treasured bird has a future on Lundy.
