The Puffin spends its life at sea fishing for sand eels. It comes ashore to breed in the spring on grass-topped cliffs, preferring old rabbit burrows.
Its colourful bill fades after the breeding season. The new chicks “jump-fly” and scramble by night down from the cliffs on which they have been bred.
Simple, elegant decoration beautifully hand carved and painted.
