Saturday June 5th was the first of SCAN's ringing days on Puffin Island. The weather was good and with a team of nine we ringed a total of 253 new birds including 127 shags (all chicks), 99 razorbills (32 adults, 67 chicks), 11 guillemots (all adults), 1 puffin (adult) and 8 kittiwakes (all adults).
 
We also retrapped 27 birds ringed in previous years (2 shags, 11 razorbills, 3 guillemots and 11 kittiwakes).
