An adult Puffin watches from the cliff tops on Skomer Island on July 20, 2010 in Pembrokeshire, Wales. The island, which has the biggest Puffin colony in Southern Britain, plays host to over 10,000 Puffins, who come from April to the end of July to breed. The small island, off the coast of southwest Wales and managed by the Wildlife Trust of South and West Wales, is one of the most important and accessible seabird breeding sites in Europe and has become a Mecca for wildlife and bird lovers.
