Ramsey Island puffins: 200 decoys to lure birds back


Wardens are using decoy puffins to lure the real birds back to Pembrokeshire's Ramsey Island.

Around 200 look-alike models have been placed on the island's cliffs in a bid to persuade puffins that it is a safe place to breed.

Puffins disappeared from the island in the 1890s, easy prey for brown rats which arrived on ships.
