Puffin numbers the rise in north east En


Puffin numbers in part of the north-east of England are making a comeback despite thousands having perished in severe winter storms.

A census on the Farne Islands showed there had been an eight per cent increase from the last count in 2008.

There are now just under 40,000 pairs of nesting puffins across the eight islands
