This partial albino puffin was reported yesterday. We managed to get some video this morning.

"Partial albinos occur in many colonies and are normally not notcied as the white is usually restricted to patches on the head, neck and back. Even when the Puffin is almost entirely white the primaries remain black.
...
"Leucism, in which the normal pigmentation is diluted, giving a very pale brown, almost cream-coloured Puffin occurs but is even rarer."
M.P Harris (1984) "The Puffin", Poyser, p27
