These shots were taken along the cliffs at Rottingdean in Sussex, during January - May 2009. Fulmars are occasional visitors, and despite their initial appearance are not gulls, but petrels. They have a distinctive 'tubenose', and spend their non-coastal tine over the Atlantic. They are able to drink seawater, and produce an oily bile which they spit at predators as a form of chemical defence.
The shots were all taken with the Canon EOS 40D and mostly the EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L USM IS lens, some with a UV filter attached. The shots taken on 13th April and in May 2009 were with the EF 400mm f/5.6L USM lens.
