The text on the back says:


This island is one of the Farne Islands, which are situated 2 to 5 miles off the Northumberland coast. The best time of the year to visit is May, June and July as many different species of sea birds, including Puffins, come to nest here. The Puffin is a member of the Auk Family and feeds primarily on fish. They nest in rabbit burrows and niches in cliffs. During the breading season they develop distinct, brightly coloured beaks. This has given rise to the names ‘Clown of the Sea’ and ‘Sea Parrot’.
