A trip to Devon's 'Puffin Island'


Eleven miles off the UK's Devon coast lies the Island of Lundy which was home to 4,000 puffins in the 1930s.

But the population plummeted and rats were blamed so they were eradicated from the island.

Karen Bowerman reports from Lundy where the breeding population of puffins is once again increasing.
