Spot puffins in southern Iceland

Although numbers are dwindling, over 5 million Atlantic puffins nest in Iceland throughout the spring and summer months. Two of the best places to spot these little birds – along with cormorants, kittiwakes and black guillemots – are the uninhabited islands of Akurey and Lundy.
