Coquet Island puffin cams reveal birds' breeding habits


A webcam has been installed in a Puffin nest on Coquet Island, off the Northumberland coast.

Viewers can watch them on parenting duty until it fledges and they all leave the island in July or August. The UK holds some 10% of the world's puffins, but numbers are declining and they are now on the Red List of UK Birds of Conservation Concern.

Coquet Island is an important breeding site for Puffin (Michael Taylor).

Coquet Island, which has been an RSPB nature reserve since 1970, is a breeding ground for thousands of Puffins.
