The rain does not bother puffins, they are waterproof!

Their feathers are covered with a layer of oil that will make the water glide off of them. They keep dry and warm.

So it was a pleasure to go out and see them: We better enjoy it while it last. A few weeks from now, they will leave their breeding grounds and disappear at sea until next April.
