Get To Know the Puffin

Puffins are masters of the sea and the sky. They can flap their wings up to 400 times per minute hitting speeds of up to 88 km per hour. They can dip below the waves to depths of 60 meters to hunt. While they spend most of the winter out at sea, you can spot them in coastal areas of the UK beginning in late spring.

Key Facts:

Scientific Name: Fratercula Arctica

Bird Family: Auks

Diet: Fish, especially Sand Eels

Population: Global: 12-14 million

Measurements: Length: 26-29 cm Wingspan: 47-63 cm Weight: 320-480g


Conservation Status and Threats

The Puffin is listed on the Red list of UK birds of conservation concern. Puffins live a long life —about 20 years! Puffins don’t start breeding until they are 5-6 years old with each mating pair only laying one egg per year. This means that it can take many years for a population to recover from a threat. The main threats to Puffins include:

• Impacts of climate change – sea surface temp and associated shifts in prey

• Distribution and quantity of the small fish they feed on

• Oil spills and other marine pollution


How can you help?

• Support sustainable fishing practices

• Support recycling programs that can decrease ocean pollution

• Volunteering- from encouraging others to protect our precious species to taking part in surveys.


Nesting and Breeding Habits

Puffins begin to return to their nesting sites in early spring to lay their egg. They like to make their nests by burrowing into the soil. If soil isn’t available, they may also make their nests under rocks, in rabbit burrows, or in the cracks of a cliff. After 30 to 45 days, a baby Puffin — a Puffling — will hatch. The parents will care for it for about 60 days until it learns to fly.


When and Where to See Them

You can find Puffins in their breeding colonies all over the UK and Ireland from March to mid-August. One of the best places to spot them is at the RSPB Bempton Cliffs Reserve on the Yorkshire coast.


How You Can Help

You can help the Puffin thrive by supporting sustainable fishing practices and using recycling programs that can decrease ocean pollution.
