If you are close, for example on the Farne islands, then the 55-300mm should be fine.
Best regards, John

I'm told the puffins get really up close and personal, so I'd say any of the lenses you listed, but there's not many in the list, so why not take them all?

I used my 300mm and 100mm macro. SHould serve you well, though a wide angle would be good too with close up puffins in the setting. Defo take 300mm zoom as razorbills and guillemots on entrance steps are a bit further away and always a chance of short eared owl, chough and raven
