Making friends with the Fulmars

05th May 2017
I also found time to hunker down with the Fulmars, a gull with eye make up that looks like its been left on from a heavy night on the rock the night before.

They are beguiling birds, seemingly tender with their partners one moment but extremely unsociable with neighbours or visitors who invade their space. A curious gull related to the albatross family they spit out foul smelling gas should intruders get too close to their nest.

Maybe the strong winds helped me this time or maybe they accepted my presence laying low on the cliff top but I fortunately didn't get a whiff of their weaponry!
