Isle of May puffins
Around 90,000 Atlantic puffins (Fratercula arctica) breed on the Isle of May, Firth of Forth, Scotland. The 1-mile-long isle is a National Nature Reserve and an important breeding colony for these and other seabirds. Puffins spend much of their time fishing for small shoaling fish, such as sandeels, but come onshore to lay their eggs in burrows dug in soft soil in April-May. Once the eggs hatch, the adults bring beaks full of fish to the burrow to feed the pufflings, which fledge in June-July.

Wildlife in the Canberra suburbs. I live across from a pond used to protect the Murrumbidgee from storm water pollution.

I took these shots over 3 weeks on about 7 hourish walks around Stranger pond. These all have wings but other Aussie animals are there too. Some shots were only 100-150 meters from my front door; even the shots of the Egret catching the carp.
