With Star Wars filming reportedly underway on Skellig Michael, check out these adorable puffins that will have a front-row seat for all of the action.

Wildlife lover Peter Cutler shot the video of the puffins that have lived on the island for as long as anyone can remember so we asked whether having a film crew in their natural habitat would interfere much with the birds and Peter said that while they are nesting at the moment, the puffins are well used to high tourist volume so might not be too put out by it all, "It's a pity it's this time of year, they'd have to be very careful in terms of disturbance but it is a high tourist time so they'd be used to having people around."

The video was shot by Peter Cutler for Crow Crag Productions
