The puffin is unmistakable; once seen, never forgotten. With its beautiful markings, strikingly coloured bill and almost comic gait it is a bird that has endeared itself to millions. Though often known as a sea parrot, locally in Northumberland, the bird is known as a 'Tommy noddy'. It is a member of the auk family, alongside guillemots and razorbills - also present on the Islands. Males and females look almost identical with the male often being slightly larger. .
