Saunders, N. & Wheatley, S. (2012) Journal of the Lundy Field Society 3:111-124
Numbers of breeding Atlantic Puffin [Fratercula arctica] on Lundy in 2009 and 2010 were estimated both from survey work and from LFS Logbook records, and the distribution of breeding birds was established. Productivity of Puffins was studied at two sites. In 2009, six pairs attempted breeding with a productivity of 0.5 young per breeding pair, and in 2010 there was a substantial increase to an estimated 16 breeding pairs with overall productivity of 0.44
