Close up camera

Unfortunately Main Camera and Close-Up Camera stopped working in June - as Burhou is closed during the puffin breeding season we may not be able to get out to fix them. Colony Cam is still working and giving great views of the puffins bringing fish back to the burrows and spending time on land. 

Puffin cameras live from the island of Alderney during their breeding season, March - July. Enjoy watching the birds go through their breeding cycle, arriving back on Alderney, clearing burrows and building nests, laying their eggs and then raising chicks. Why not see how many puffins you can count rafting on the water on Colony Cam. Or how many fish the puffins are bringing back to their puffling on the Close Up Cam? And look out for stand offs between puffins and rabbits on the Main Cam

If you want to find our more about puffins and the other seabirds on Alderney check our our teaching resources page! 

Each of the cameras put out an infrared light at night, this does not harm or affect the birds but means you can watch Burhou's nightlife - including the puffins, storm petrels, bats, rabbits and gulls. 

To find out more about coming to Alderney to see the puffins for yourselves please head to the the Visit Alderney website

The puffin cams are provided free of charge and any support you can offer to keeping them running will be gratefully received.
