Puffins are curious and unafraid of humans, and very sociable among themselves. I loved this image of their crowding around your boat, like drinkers hovering at the pub door.

‘You can take your boat in among them.¬† They scatter to start with, but then slowly seep back in, soon enough clustered around you like a crowd waiting for the pub to open.’
