A PUFFIN plays a beaky blinder by stuffing its mouth full of sand eels.

The bird was unlikely to go hungry after it was seen carrying half a dozen fish, freshly caught in the North Sea.

It then flew back to the breeding colonies at Dunnet Head, mainland Britain’s most northerly point, to feed its young.

Ian Herd, 49, from Alness, Ross and Cromarty, said he had to peer over the cliffs to get these pictures.

He added: “Adult puffins will make regular trips out to sea.

“They return with their beaks full of sand eels which are energy-rich, which they then feed to the pufflings.
