Puffin Watching on Sark
The seabird breeding season is in full swing here on Sark, which means that our puffins have returned from their life far out at sea to breed on L’Etac, an islet off Little Sark. The birds rear a single chick, called a puffling, in a burrow and by now one or other of the parents will be keeping the egg warm until it hatches in June. The best way to see Sark’s puffins is to take George Guille’s round-the-island boat trip where you’ll also see guillemots, razorbills and fulmars as well as visiting some of the island’s fabulous sea caves.
