A lucky group of  young puffins were released on Lundy Island  ,off the  coast of Bideford ,Devon. The puffins were among  4o seabirds rescued  during feburary storms-3 in total.The birds  spent  2  months  at r.s .p.c.a   Westhatch Wildlife  Centre then  taken by Ms Olderburg  to Lundy.This  was good for  puffins  and  lundy  as  the  numbers  of puffins  fell to just 5  in 2003  due to rats-now  eradicated-and  now more than 180 are on the  island.
