The Alderney Wildlife Trust is reminding islanders to respect a Puffin Friendly Zone off the coast of Burhou.

It was introduced last year, and asks marine users to avoid the area between March and August, and to minimise noise when nearby.

They say it is to provide the birds with a safe area to rest and to avoid disturbing them during breeding season.
