A Few Fulmars

It was pretty windy today, and turned cloudy in the afternoon, but this morning a few of the fulmars were active at Rottingdean.

Fulmars spend a lot of time sweeping along the cliffs looking for landing sites.

And we even had some blue sky…

And because I like the photo, a starling (one of the other cliff residents).

      Darko, they are much underrated birds, but in the right light they can be stunning.
