I spotted a bit of excitement among nearby photographers and realised it was related to this puffin bringing home fish for the chicks. It seems a bit unusual that the bird is just standing here on the rocks, since the nests are in burrows in the earthier part of the island. Normally the puffins dive straight in to avoid the black-headed gulls that try to rob them of their catch. According to the page linked below, the record for the number fish held in a puffin's bill is 62!
The final puffin picture - at least for now :-) You'll find an interesting page about puffins here.
