The puffin is in the running to be crowned Britain’s first national bird.

The puffin, with its multicoloured beak, was part of a 10-strong shortlist of feathered friends to feature in a public vote, which closed earlier this month.

The winner is set to be announced on BBC Two’s Springwatch Unsprung on Wednesday, June 10.
