A dramatic puffin design adorns this 100% cotton tea towel. Based on watercolour artwork by Devon-based artist Rachel Toll, this design captures the flight of a puffin as it soars away from some very choppy waves.
Puffins are an unmistakable visitor to parts of our rockier coastline. They spend the winter out at sea, but come ashore in the spring and summer to breed and make nests in burrows in rocky cliffs. Their noisy colonies cling to the shoreline.
The RSPB has a number of reserves around the country where you might catch sight of puffins nesting in spring. RSPB Rathlin Island off the coast of Northern Ireland, Bempton Cliffs in Yorkshire, RSPB South Stack Cliffs on Anglesey or RSPB Fowlsheugh in Aberdeenshire are all excellent places to see this wonderful little bird.
It is estimated the British Isles provides a home to 10% of the world's puffin population. Their way of life is threatened by pollution and over-fishing of waters, as well as predators on land such as rats.
Our new collection of homewares is inspired by coastal birds which spend life on both land and water. Beautifully illustrated by Rachel Toll, the puffins, gannets, dunlins, oystercatchers and avocets are some of our most precious species. They might migrate here or live offshore at different times of year, but they all call our coastline home.
The RSPB is working together with other partners including National Trust, to improve the long term prospects for our coastal habitats. Click here to find out more about our LIFE on the edge project.
