Quality The flight activity data were not collected consistently over the entire time
period from 19.06.-07.07.2005. The data were col-lected in two short term
intervals: 19.06.-23.06.2005 and 03.07.-07.07.2005.

The flight activity observations were carried out at two short-term intervals
(June 19th-23rd and July 03rd-7th) during the daylight from 05:00 to 21:00 with
binoculars at a distance of ca. 220m from a cliff site that allowed visual
assessment. During the obser-vation time every appearance together with the
number of Tufted Puffins flying in or out the colony was noted. Specific nest
clusters were outlined.
Access Constraints After arrangement with contact persons. Data are used for research publications
