The Atlantic Puffin is also known as “Tammie Norrie”

The iconic Puffin is a seabird related to the Auk family of Birds. The Atlantic Puffin is only found in and around the North Atlantic Ocean with many breeding grounds in Scotland, Iceland and the Faroes.

They perch in nests or burrows on Sea Cliffs in Spring to breed, mating with their partners for life. The chicks feed on small fish brought to them by their parents, who also protect them from predators, for six weeks whilst they grow.

The fully fledged chicks launch themselves from the cliffs into the sea at 6 weeks old, and then spend many years at sea, before returning as Adults to begin the breeding cycle again.

The Atlantic Puffin is recognisable from its black crown and back, contrasted with it’s white chest, but the greatest characteristic is their wide marked red and black beak and orange legs. The Puffin  is sometimes referred to as “the clown of the sea” with it’s playful looks.

In Scots, the Puffin is known as the “Tammie Norrie”, originating from the Shetland and Orcadian names for the Birds. These can be shortened to “Tammy” or “Norrie”.

Enjoy the great outdoors in comfort & style in a sustainable and environmentally kind manner.
