Please note our webcams are now turned off for the winter as the puffins have departed on migration. Please check back in Spring 2018 when the cameras will again be transmitting from Burhou.


Our newest camera pans across a wider area of the puffin colony on Burhou (2 miles offshore of Alderney), showing the main area the puffins use for their burrows. We hope you enjoy the views of Alderney in the background and the Swinge - the fast moving channel between the two islands and you can even see the other 2 cameras in the foreground! We apologise for any loss of signal and we will do our best to make sure it's temporary when it does happen. However, please feel free to report problems to us by emailing

If you are having problems viewing this webcam through a Mac or Android device you will may need a Flash Media enabled browser to see the stream. We recommend for Macs - Puffin Browser and for Android devices - Photon Flash Browser.


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