I really wanted to see puffins when I was in Iceland.
They are such cool looking birds.
Click on the graphic below to learn more about puffins.
But I did not do my research properly (or at all).
Puffins come to Iceland in the spring to mate, lay their eggs and raise their young. Then at the end of August, they head back out on the Atlantic to bob on the waves all winter, until returning to land in the spring.
Pete and I got a puffin fix in tourist shops.
