Puffins spend most of their lives out at sea, but during their breeding season from late March through to late July they come on land to nest. The best time for puffin watching at the nest sites is from mid June to mid July when the parent birds are busy flying back and forth from the sea to the nests with food for the chicks.
Puffin watching is a favourite when visiting Pembrokeshire, and when boat safari’s are only a few miles away from the grounds there’s no excuse not to go and see them. Skomer island is the home of more than 250,000 sea birds, including around 6,000 pairs of puffins.
The sheltered bays and exposed headlands are one of the must see places in Pembrokeshire, and with such an abundance of wildlife to see it’s a very special place for nature lovers.
