Today is the official end of our puffin season this year. As there are still few puffins around we will though continue to stop by one of the islands on our whale watching tours. We know that any day soon they might take of to their winter whereabouts so it is important to make good use of the days we still have with these charismatic birds.
Of the islands closest to Reykjavķk the puffins have, until now, only been known to breed on Akurey and Lundey. To our pleasant surprise it appears that they have started their breeding in Engey as well. For the last few days we have therefore headed there to see the puffins as there were quite few puffins left on Akurey and Lundey. It will surely be interesting to see how the breedings on Engey will develop and we will surely keep a close eye on that.
