Fowlesheugh trip last Saturday

Weather was great. Dolphins out to sea and Great Skua feeding on auks corpse at the bottom of the cliff. Building up for a good summer season I hope.

  • Lovely photos

    Hazel. Hi - yup, guillemots - with one the 'bridled' version. Looks like wearing glasses. The other is a very relaxed razorbill. I'm ok on ID but learning re; photography. thanks for the positive comment.

  • Great photos, Stephen. I must admit I didn't know where Fowlesheugh was so had to look it up. Great place by the look of it. I also like the Kittiwake peeking out amongst the Guillemots.
