I'm going to book my holiday there for next year.

Yeah, it's a great boom for the Irish tourist board.

I love puffins. My key chain is a puffin. I have puffin socks.

I have to go. I've never been in the UK and had any desire to pop in to Ireland. Now I do. Not Ireland in general (not that I have a particular aversion to the place - I've just never had a reason or particular desire to go) but those puffins, in particular.

I think they congregate on the side of the island away from the camera in the movie. I think it's sheer cliff.

The trouble is now millions of people will want to go there and it won't be a beautiful island full of puffins any more. :(

They are THE most adorable bird. They have such a dumb, friendly demeanor.

I need to find out when they're at Skellig Michael and see if I can visit the island for a day or two.

Google says they're here from April to September; then they fuck off to Canada.

Puffins are adorable. :)
They exist down at the Maine coast, but I've still never seen one. Not that I go looking for them.

It sounds like they're the same puffins I've seen in my own fair country. I've been duped.

If you're seeing them on the west coast, they're different species than the Atlantic Puffins.

I don't consider the puffins on my coast puffins at all. Atlantic puffins or bust.
