A head for heights ...

Fulmar (Fulmarus glacialis)

Although their true home is over the wildest, windswept seas of the North Atlantic, the Fulmar (F. glacialis) can often be seen visiting breeding cliffs, even during the winter months, and can be viewed as they sail by on the prevailing wind currents. As one of my favourite sea birds I was pleased to visit one such breeding colony in recent weeks.
