Easternmost record of an Atlantic puffin Fratercula arctica in the Mediterranean Sea on the coast of Israel

Abstract:
We report the finding of an Atlantic puffin on the Mediterranean coast of Israel in September 2018. We use morphometrics and current knowledge of puffin movements to infer that the bird is likely from Britain or Ireland. This record is over 1500 km further east than the easternmost recovery of a British or Irish ringed puffin in the Mediterranean Sea to date.
