Tynemouth Haven Fulmars

Further to the previous post I did manage to sneak a few images of the Fulmars flying across the cliff face.
Their  nasal passages  attached to the upper bill as well as the bills' pronounced hooked end make it quite unique in appearance

Apparently they can produce a stomach oil made which is used against predators, which can lead to death, as well as an energy rich food source for chicks and for the adults during their long flights.
